EMIRATES SkyCargo's Irish cargo figures showed the airline carried close to 10,000 tons of Irish exports from Dublin, during 2018, reports the American Journal of Transportation.

In addition to up to 720 passengers flying twice daily between Dublin and Dubai and beyond, Emirates offers up to 25 tons of cargo capacity on each of its Boeing-777 aircraft that operate the Dublin route.



Thirty-five per cent of Emirates SkyCargo's Irish export cargo for 2018 are crabs, oysters, razor shells and salmon, mostly for Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.



Other produce making its way to the supermarkets of Dubai and onwards to Asia include yoghurt, cheese, Irish beef, chocolates and baby milk formula.



Pharmaceuticals accounted for more than 2,000 tonnes of cargo carried by Emirates SkyCargo from Dublin in 2018. Primary end markets for products from leading pharmaceutical companies in Ireland include Australia, India and the Middle East.



Other Irish products being exported to markets such as the UAE, China, Singapore, Australia and South Africa, and making up 35 per cent of exports, include computer equipment, electronics and machinery.



Large computer servers (supporting Cloud Technology) manufactured in Ireland are exported worldwide using Emirates' wide-body aircraft services to Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.



Said Emirates SkyCargo country manager Michael Meagher: 'Since 2012 Emirates has been supporting Irish companies, carrying more than 50,000 tonnes of cargo out of Dublin, making us the number one carrier for air cargo from Ireland to the Middle East, Australia and China.'
