Fiji Airways, Emirates SkyCargo sign cargo agreement

Fiji Airways and Emirates SkyCargo announced a new interline cargo arrangement.

The newly-signed agreement sees both airlines offer rates for seamless carriage of cargo between Fiji and the Middle East and Europe.

Fijian exporters will now be able to use Fiji Airways to send their exports to these markets from Nadi, Fiji, to Sydney or Auckland, New Zealand, and then onto Emirates SkyCargo’s global network.

“We’re happy to now have an interline arrangement in place with Emirates SkyCargo, one of the world’s biggest air cargo carriers,” Stefan Pichler, managing director and CEO of Fiji Airways, said. “The agreement means we now have a larger distribution and increased capacity for cargo from Fiji through their impressive global network. This will greatly assist Fijian exporters to utilize our daily Sydney and Auckland services to send their products to newer markets.”

Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, Fiji’s attorney general and minister for industry and trade, said opening up new markets for Fijian-made and Fijian-grown products is one of the Fijian Government’s key initiatives.

“This arrangement is a big win for Brand Fiji, opening up a whole new part of the world to Fijian exporters, including small farmers who will be able to ship fresh produce to market,” Sayed-Khaiyum said. “And for overseas companies, it will increase access to the Fijian market, and by extension the wider region, reinforcing Fiji’s status as the trading hub of the South Pacific.”

Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo, talked about the benefits of the interline agreement to Emirates.

“This agreement further extends our global reach and opens up new business and trade lanes, giving our customers access to markets in the South Pacific region,” Sultan said. “It is a mutually-beneficial arrangement for both our airlines and our customers, and we look forward to working together with Fiji Airways.”
