(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Emirates? air cargo business accounts for over 15 per cent of the airline?s total transport revenue.

emirates has successfully completed the validation process for the european union-initiated acc3 security regulation becoming the region’s first air carrier to do so.

the validation ensures emirates skycargo’s uninterrupted services into the eu. through close collaboration between emirates group security and skycargo emirates completed the acc3 security validation at the dubai hub before the deadline on july 1 2014. failure to complete the validation would have potentially prohibited emirates from transporting cargo into the european union – severely disrupting skycargo’s operations. emirates’ air cargo business accounts for over 15 per cent of the airline’s total transport revenue.

dr abdulla al hashimi emirates’ divisional senior vice president of group security said: “we placed the highest priority on the inspection and validation of our cargo operations in dubai being the hub for our operations. emirates is seeking similar validation at other stations from where emirates regularly operates freighter flights direct to the european union. working with law enforcement stakeholders and business units emirates group security has spearheaded the validation task.”

an approved independent inspector reviewed the air cargo processing and security measures in place at skycargo’s facility in dubai. the department for transport of the united kingdom of great britain granted emirates’ acc3 status on behalf of the eu.

“while the acc3 validation is specifically for carriers with cargo bound for the eu emirates group security is constantly reviewing processes to ensure that all cargo being transported including those on passenger aircraft are effectively screened and free from prohibited items. it is our priority to study and look at how we can further integrate such stringent security standards into a larger worldwide supply chain security system” dr al hashimi added.
