Emirates SkyCargo: B-777 "Rosie" airplane with a special livery
Dubai, UAE - To celebrate Chinese Valentine’s Day
Shanghai’s Pudong International airport had a special visitor on the day of the Qixi festival. ‘Rosie’ Emirates SkyCargo’s rose-liveried B-777 freighter aircraft arrived at the Chinese city during the early hours of 28th August to mark the day known as Chinese Valentine’s Day.
The city is one of its scheduled freighter destinations and the air cargo carrier connects businesses and cargo from Shanghai to the rest of the world through a network that spans over 155 destinations in 84 countries.
The rose decal on A6-EFL was originally unveiled in Dubai on the occasion of Valentine’s Day in February this year in order to highlight the role of Emirates SkyCargo in the global floriculture industry. Since then, the aircraft has flown around the world to close to 50 destinations across six continents and has made special visits including arriving in Barcelona on the Catalan ‘Day of the Rose’. In six months the airplane has flown over 400 flights and has carried over 20,000 tonnes of cargo including flowers and other perishables, pharmaceuticals, horses, cars and general cargo.
