Emirates SkyCargo and the Australian government will work together to facilitate exports of Australian produce to overseas markets including the Middle East.
The air cargo carrier will participate in the Australian government's International Freight Assistance Mechanism which will directly support Australian exporters by strengthening supply chains between Australia and its export markets, according to a media release.
Over 560 Australian businesses have already registered to use the International Freight Assistance Mechanism.
Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, is now operating scheduled cargo flights on its Boeing 777-F and Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft to close to 60 global destinations.
The air cargo carrier has helped transport vital medical supplies to different parts of the world including Australia on both its scheduled and special charter flights.
"We are currently serving Sydney with four weekly flights on our Boeing 777 freighter aircraft, and Melbourne with five weekly flights on our Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft. We are committed to supporting Australian farms and businesses, and to helping transport vital food supplies to key global markets," said Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo.
