EMIRATES OFFERS ON-LINE BOOKING
The cargo division of Emirates, the airline of the United Arab Emirates,
has launched a new website that allows forwarders and shippers to book
cargo shipments electronically.
The website, called SkyChain, also gives Emirates’ cargo customers the
ability to check flight schedules, track shipments, check capacity
availability and exchange e-mail. Emirates also plans to use the new
Internet site to help transfer air waybill information between shipper,
forwarder, airline and consignee.
United Airlines became the first airline to offer Internet-based air
freight shipment booking in April.
