Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has launched Emirates AOG to transport aircraft parts quickly across the globe.
“Every day, spare parts are air freighted at short notice to help repair aircraft that have been stranded due to technical reasons and lack of availability of the right spare part,” the airline said in a statement yesterday.
“Emirates AOG…is built to respond to the needs of airlines wanting to service grounded aircraft by dispatching critical aircraft components unavailable at destination, on the quickest possible time without compromising on the quality of handling and customer service.”
Special features include a late cut-off time for cargo acceptance at origin – up to four hours prior to scheduled time of departure for shipments weighing less than 100 kilogrammes.
It includes expedited delivery at destination - a maximum 2.5 hours from actual arrival time of the aircraft, track and trace visibility of the consignment during transportation and priority handling.
Emirates SkyCargo has also created a “Must Go” bag for bulk loading of small AOG shipments. Its red colour alerts Emirates SkyCargo staff to the urgent nature of shipment ensuring dedicated priority handling for the aircraft part in transit, especially during airside operations.
Emirates SkyCargo has developed a number of transportation solutions targeted at specific industry verticals.
These include Emirates Pharma for the secure transportation of temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals, Emirates Fresh for transporting fresh produce such as fruits, vegetables, sea food and meat and Emirates Wheels for moving luxury and premium automobiles.
