We are used to transporting cars by land, but there are also companies that offer similar services by air. While this is definitely an offer for those with a fatter wallet, there is no denying that this is an extremely fast and safe means of transporting goods. How to do it?


Emirates and Qatar Airways are among the few airlines to offer a specialized car transport service. The department responsible for this procedure – SkyCargo – has a lot of experience in this field. This is mainly due to the fact that Emirates’ main airport is Dubai, home to some of the richest people in the world. It is not uncommon for them to take their vintage, luxury, and/or sports cars on business trips – after all, they can afford it, price is not an issue.

However, convenience is not always the reason for transporting a car by air. The speed of air transportation means easy access to automotive experts who will attempt to salvage vintage cars with the right attitude. Moreover, air transport is also used in case of exhibitions, buying/selling a car or at least changing the place of residence of the owner

Cars are placed in the hands of qualified specialists who guarantee the safety of goods during the flight

Service packages offered

An exclusive service requires extraordinary requirements. This is the case with SkyCargo. The most expensive package of air transport services includes, among others, direct transport of the vehicle between selected locations, pick-up from the base and delivery abroad, handling of customs clearance (import and export). In addition, the customer is relieved from worrying about motor and transport insurance, because they are included in the offered package.

However, it is also possible to find a variant of services that includes exclusive handling of the connection between airports. This allows you to save and shorten the time of transport of the vehicle.

Sample implementation

As we mentioned, cars are transported by air for service purposes. Emirates airline documented on its YouTube channel how exactly the process of transporting a car via SkyCargo works. The Pagani Zonda F supercar was transported from the United Arab Emirates directly to Bologna, where the Italian brand’s renowned car service is located. You can find the video below!

How much does it cost?

Without a doubt, the financial magnates of the United Arab Emirates will not feel any change in their account balance after using the airline service. However, for an ordinary Kowalski, the sum of 30 to 60 thousand zlotys (one way!) is in many cases the amount of annual income. Cars sent to travel by air very often cover a distance of more than three thousand kilometers. Transport is carried out using a fleet of Airbus aircraft, one of which can accommodate on board as many as 31 vehicles.


Certainly, air car transport is only worthwhile if you are on time and have enough cash. SkyCargo services are designed and reserved for the richest people of the globe who, during their numerous foreign escapades, feel the need to take their favorite luxury hypercars with them. Having your car at hand even in the farthest corners of the world is an invaluable aid and convenience

We have to admit that this is an extremely tempting proposition. After all, who wouldn’t want to take advantage of transporting their car or cars in a manner similar to that used when transporting luggage?
