Emirates cargo relief dash

Emirates SkyCargo dispatched three of its fully-loaded freighters to aid Pakistan's relief efforts. Included was a Boeing 747-400 aircraft which was re-routed from its commercial services to carry 14 vehicles on behalf of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies located at the Jebel Ali Free Zone. The airline has carried hundreds of tons of relief supplies to Islamabad in the past week. [AMEInfo.com]
