Emirates SkyCargo’s top cargo agents in NSW have been recognised in style at the carrier’s annual awards luncheon in Sydney.
This year’s event was held at the Sofitel Wentworth in central Sydney at the Captain’s Table, and hosted by Emirates SkyCargo’s National Cargo Manager, Greg Johnson; Cargo Manager NSW, Alex Barkway; and NSW Cargo Sales Executive, Mark Kari.
Those agents recognised for their substantial contribution to Emirates SkyCargo’s business in 2011 were John Contos, DHL Global Forwarding; Brad Bouch and Terence Yong, DHL Express; Wade Bollard and Scott Higgins C.T. Freight; Scott O’Keeffe, Panalpina; Justin Campbell and Mike Pattinson, Air Menzies International; and Goran Panovski, Fedex.
“These awards recognise those NSW agents who have provided outstanding support to Emirates SkyCargo during the 2010/2011 financial year – it is with their support that we have once again achieved record results in a challenging business climate,” said Greg Johnson, Emirates SkyCargo National Cargo Manager.
“We place a huge value on our agent relationships as Emirates SkyCargo continues to grow its available capacity in the market – starting with the re-commencement of the airline’s third-daily Sydney flight in October 2011. This service, operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, will depart Sydney early morning daily and enable same day travel to 16 destinations in the Middle East, Europe and Africa,” added Mr Johnson.
Emirates currently operates 63 flights per week to Dubai from Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, and 28 weekly trans-Tasman services. The airline’s fleet of 157 wide-bodied aircraft includes nine freighters and is among the youngest in the skies, with an average age of 74 months.
