DUBAI 2 February 2021: Flydubai Cargo has obtained regulatory approvals to transport dangerous goods from 1st February 2021.
With the certification from the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Flydubai can now transport dangerous goods in addition to general cargo, courier, live animals, postal mail, perishables, priority cargo and valuable cargo.
Mohamed Hassan, Vice President of Cargo at Flydubai, said, “The role that air cargo plays in the supply chain industry has been especially highlighted during the pandemic to ensure vital goods continue to be transported to where they are needed the most. We continue to invest in the latest technologies and look at opportunities to grow flydubai’s capabilities and reach. This certification will allow us to continue to work closely with our strategic partners to deliver a wider range of products to our customers while following the highest safety standards set by the regulators and the aircraft manufacturer. The team at Flydubai has undergone an intensive training programme to achieve this new milestone and we will continue to enhance our product offering in line with the latest global standards and best practices.”
