flydubai Cargo wins at the SCATA Awards

flydubai Cargo wins at the SCATA Awards. Recognised as “Cargo Operator of the Year”

flydubai’s Cargo division has received the award for “Cargo Operator of the Year” at the tenth 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.

Commenting on the award, Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai, said: “flydubai Cargo 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, flydubai Cargo was able to grow its operations and it’s great to see this acknowledged in the industry.”

flydubai Cargo in 2015 increased its tonnage carried by 28.4% 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.

“Receiving this award is a great achievement and represents how far flydubai Cargo has come in such a short period of time.” Added Obaidalla. “We look forward to continuing to provide effective cargo solutions for our customers, especially in previously underserved markets.”

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. flydubai Cargo has been recognised by IATA as one of only five airlines in the world who process more than 75% of its air waybills electronically.
