Emirates launches Maastricht freighter run, plans daily schedule by April

Emirates SkyCargo has launched scheduled freighter services to Maastricht, its second freighter destination in the Netherlands after Amsterdam.  
The carrier will initially operate two freighter flights a week to Maastricht on Tuesdays and Thursdays offering 100 tonnes payload capacity using B777 freighters. The B777 also allows for the transportation of large and outsized cargo through its main deck cargo doors.
Then from the end of March, the carrier will increase its freighter frequency to Maastricht to seven weekly flights. The freighter flights to Maastricht are expected to supplement the cargo capacity offered on freighter and passenger aircraft to Amsterdam as well as providing air cargo connectivity to neighbouring regions in Belgium and Germany.
 
Expected products to be moved in and out of Maastricht will include general and e-commerce cargo and pharmaceuticals.
 
“The Netherlands is one of our most important cargo markets globally and the freighters to Maastricht will allow us to build a stronger presence to respond to customer needs in the region,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, Cargo. “In addition, the vibrant business and logistics community around Maastricht will now have access to seamless trade connections to over 155 destinations across six continents"
