Emirates SkyCargo has set up an air bridge between Dubai and Pakistan to offer free cargo to transport relief aid to people grappling with the damage caused by devastating floods.
From 2 September, cargo capacity on all Emirates’ passenger flights to Pakistan will be available to transport critical equipment and supplies, food and other emergency relief goods directly to Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, and Sialkot. The airline said these humanitarian flights will be offered to organisations based at the International Humanitarian City (IHC).
Emirates operates 53 scheduled passenger flights per week to Pakistan, where recent heavy rainfall has caused catastrophic flash flooding across the country, tragically leaving over 1,100 people dead and millions homeless.
Any of the humanitarian organisations at IHC wishing to utilise the free cargo capacity to transport humanitarian relief from Dubai to Pakistan may contact Emirates SkyCargo’s centralized crisis relief desk on [email protected] and [email protected].
