Emirates SkyCargo Announces Backlog Clearance as DXB Gets Back on Its Feet

The aftermath of last week’s unprecedented flash floods in Dubai continues to recede as Emirates SkyCargo announced significant progress in clearing the cargo backlog caused by adverse weather conditions. The latest updates from the Dubai-based cargo carrier indicate a return to normalcy as operations resume and capacity levels gradually rebound.

In a recent customer update, Emirates SkyCargo confirmed that it has successfully managed to address the vast majority of the backlog resulting from the flash floods. The airline, which serves as a vital link in global trade networks, has restored scheduled operations and has begun lifting special cargo restrictions.

“After the adverse weather in Dubai last week, Emirates SkyCargo can confirm that we have now cleared the vast majority of the backlogged cargo and resumed scheduled operations,” stated the airline in its update. “With operations restored, we have lifted some of the restrictions on special cargo, and customers are encouraged to reach out to their local Emirates SkyCargo office for the latest updates.”

The statement also expressed gratitude to customers for their patience and understanding amidst the disruptions caused by the natural calamity.

The flash floods, triggered by the heaviest rainfall recorded in the UAE in 75 years, had a profound impact on Dubai International Airport (DXB) and its operations. The torrential downpour forced the temporary closure of the airport and led to the cancellation of approximately 300 flights on Wednesday alone.

While operations gradually resumed in the days following the deluge, the airport and its associated logistics infrastructure faced challenges as water inundated various areas, affecting access roads and cargo handling facilities.
