Flydubai wins ‘Cargo Operator of the Year’ award

DUBAI, April 25, 2016

Dubai-based flydubai’s Cargo division recently received the award for “Cargo Operator of the Year” at the 10th annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (Scata).

The award recognised flydubai Cargo’s growth in the last year as it continued to provide increased accessibility to previously underserved markets and its use of electronic air waybills (e-AWB) throughout its operations, said a statement from  the airline.

The airline’s cargo unit in 2015 increased its tonnage carried by 28.4 per cent from the previous year and provides cargo services to more than 85 destinations across its network. Interline agreements with other carriers provide access to more than 200 destinations around the world, it added.

Flydubai Cargo is one of the few cargo operators that only uses electronic airway bills and in Dubai a fully automated warehouse storage facility and retrieval system enhances operations and transit times, it said.

It has been recognised by the International Air Transport Association (Iata) as one of only five airlines in the world who process more than 75 per cent of its air waybills electronically, further added the statement.

Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer at flydubai, said: “Our cargo unit has become an integral part of our business and we are delighted that it has been recognised for its strong performance last year.”

“Despite a challenging trading environment, our company was able to grow its operations and it’s great to see this acknowledged in the industry,” he said.

“Receiving this award is a great achievement and represents how far our company has come in such a short period of time. We look forward to continuing to provide effective cargo solutions for our customers, especially in previously underserved markets,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
