Emirates Cargo landed this Tuesday for the first time on their new, weekly cargo route to Oslo airport Gardermoen.
This route has been long been awaited, and will mostly cater for norwegian salmon to be exported to the Middle East, and onwards to Asia and Africa.
Salmon is one of the most popular export items from Norway, and the demand is steadily increasing world wide, so Emirates will play a key role in filling the market for norwegian sea food.
Emirates will deploy a Boeing 777-200 on this weekly route, arriving in Oslo Tuesday at 11.00 and departing 13.00.
“We are delighted that Emirates would like to take part in the significant growth in Norwegian sea food export to the major developing markets outside of Europe. Salmon is the greatest single product in air freight across Europe, and Norway is one of the few markets in which the demand for air freight is growing. The new Emirates route will give Norwegian salmon exporters even better access to a unique and efficient network, out of Dubai with Emirates” says Avinor Manager Cargo Development, Martin Langaas.
