Emirates SkyCargo has been named Air Cargo Carrier of the Year at the 2010 IFW Awards.
 The cargo division of Emirates Airline beat off competition from five other carriers including British Airways, Lufthansa and American Airlines to win the award, which is voted for by the readers of the online cargo journal International Freighting Weekly.

This is the fifth time the cargo carrier has won the award, having previously received the honour in 2008, 2006, 2005 and 2004.

 "To win this prestigious award for a fifth time is a great honour and a powerful endorsement of our service," said Ram Menen, Emirates' Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo.

The award comes as Emirates SkyCargo continues to increase its network of destinations across the globe and has recently commenced freighter services to Almaty, Bagram (Afghanistan) and São Paulo. The carrier's network now stands at 108 cities in 65 countries, comprising 25 dedicated freighter destinations and 98 points served by aircraft with belly-hold cargo capacity.
