Emirates SkyWheels is backed by the expertise of highly qualified staff across Emirates SkyCargo's global network of over 150 destinations in 6 continents, who are specifically trained on loading and unloading vehicles from aircraft with the utmost attention to care and safety.

In addition to state of the art cargo terminals in Dubai featuring dedicated storage space for vehicles, Emirates SkyCargo also boasts a modern fleet of over 245 wide-body aircraft including 15 freighters; 13 Boeing 777Fs and two B747-400ERFs.

Partnership with Gulf Concourse

Emirates SkyCargo is also a sponsor of the inaugural Gulf Concourse event that will take place in Dubai on 18 and 19 November 2016. Part of the international Concourse d'Elegance car competitions, the Gulf Concourse is a prestigious platform that brings together a combination of rare classic cars and modern bespoke luxury and supercars, on display for the first time in the region.

Cars participating in Concourse d'Elegance events across the world are normally not driven on a day to day basis and are meticulously maintained by collectors to ensure a perfect appearance for display in private collections, museums or competition events.

This, combined with the high value and uniqueness of the cars, meant that the Emirates SkyCargo team had to ensure that the vehicles were transported with the utmost of care, safety and security. (ANI)
