Cathay Cargo, a global leader in the air cargo industry, hosted the “Wings of Excellence” – United Arab Emirates (UAE) Celebrations, on 7 November 2023, at the Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai. The event not only celebrated the company’s skilled employees who through their expertise deliver on Cathay Cargo’s inspiring tagline, “We Know How”; but more importantly, also acknowledged the invaluable trust and the unwavering support from Cathay Cargo’s key shippers, freight forwarders and ground handlers (GHA’s), from the UAE.
This marked the first Wings of Excellence event in the UAE since the onset of the pandemic. Cathay Regional Head of Cargo, South Asia, Middle East and Africa Rajesh Menon was in attendance to extend his appreciation to Cathay Cargo’s essential stakeholders.
Additionally, the event witnessed the launch of Cathay Cargo’s new brand campaign “We Know How” that focuses on the innovation, people, solutions and service – as well as customer-centricity – that are central to Cathay Cargo.
Speaking at the event, Rajesh Menon said: “It’s truly an honour to connect with our partners from the United Arab Emirates whose unwavering enthusiasm and trust have enriched our working relationship. Together, we have achieved remarkable milestones, propelling us to become the preferred cargo solutions partner for renowned global brands in Dubai. Looking ahead, I am excited about the possibilities we can collaboratively explore together in 2024. As we navigate the path to the new normal, we must remember that our shared commitment to upholding our brand promise will steer us through the next phase of growth.
“We presently operate five cargo freighters weekly from Dubai World Central (DWC); in addition to utilising the existing daily cargo belly capacity of passenger flights departing from Dubai International Airport (DXB). The ‘Wings of Excellence’ celebrates and acknowledges our exceptional partners who have been instrumental in our achievements. With the steady movement of e-commerce, courier, valuables, sea-air cargo, oil and gas, aircraft engines, cars, and exhibition shipments, we remain bullish on the UAE market and anticipate the continued support of our stakeholders in driving the forthcoming phase of growth.”
