(MENAFN) Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates Airline, unveiled plans to launch a second route to Thailand, the company said in a press release.

The company will launch a daily non-stop flight to Phuket island on December 10, operated by an A340-300 with a belly hold capacity of 13 tonnes.

Phuket will become the 15th route launch for Emirates this year and the second in South East Asia following the launch of Ho Chi Minh City in June.

The A340-300 will take the weekly cargo capacity into and out of the country to more than 640 tonnes. This capacity is spread across four flights to Bangkok and one to Phuket.

Imports into Phuket are mainly meat, spare parts, diving equipment, office supplies and fish, while the top exports include tuna, live shrimp and crab.

Phuket is famous to be a favourite tourist destination, therefore there is also strong demand for the movement of personal effects and household goods into and out of the island.

Emirates currently operate four daily flights between Dubai and Bangkok, including one with its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft.
