FRAPORT AG: Emirates Inaugurates Freighter Service Between Frankfurt and Dubai
Beginning today, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is offering a new cargo connection to Dubai (DXB) in the United Arab Emirates. Because of growing cargo demand Emirates (airline code = EK/UAE) is deploying the Boeing 747-400F widebody freighter twice per week on the new Frankfurt-Dubai route. Until now, Emirates has used its passenger jets to carry airfreight between Frankfurt and Dubai. Fraport AG's Aviation Ground Services and Logistics (BVD) division has been contracted by Emirates to provide cargo handling at FRA. With more than 1.6 million metric tons of airfreight and airmail in 2002, Frankfurt Airport ranks number one in Europe and number eight worldwide (Source: Airports Council International rankings).
