Trade

The UAE and Norway enjoy a trade relationship estimated at Ä245 million.

There are nearly 70 Norwegian companies that actively operate in the UAE, with oil, gas and shipping as prominent source industries.

Over 100,000 tonnes of fresh Norwegian salmon are flown to a host of destinations around the world every year from the country.

On the inaugural flight departing Oslo, fresh salmon was transported in the belly hold of the Emirates Boeing 777-300ER to Dubai and Kuala Lumpur. Live king crabs were also shipped to Incheon and pharmaceuticals and electronics were uplifted and transported to other destinations on Emiratesí global network.

Air cargo has a vital role in many industriesí global supply chains and Emirates SkyCargo anticipates that with the new service and 23 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight, more time-sensitive salmon and other cargo such as ship spares can be easily transported. Daily services are particularly important to businesses running streamlined operations that depend on rapid delivery of goods.

Throughout all cabin classes, passengers can enjoy over 1,800 channels of on demand entertainment on ice, the airline's inflight entertainment system.
