Air China Cargo launches weekly freighter service to Liege
Aviation - Air China Cargo started a weekly flight between Liege Airport and Shanghai with a Boeing 777-200 from June 7. Ground and cargo handling operations will be provided by LACHS.
Steven Verhasselt, VP Commercial, Liege Airport, said, “We welcome Air China Cargo into the Liege Airport Cargo Community. We are proud to serve another national cargo carrier. We will support them in order to achieve the joint goal of expanding the operation and increasing regular flights. We also thank the Liege Airport Community for their interest and support. Air China Cargo's team has been meeting with many of them in Liege and at the Liege Airport booth and meeting room in Munich at Air Cargo Europe.
Their enthusiasm definitely triggered the early startup of the operation. With Flexpress, specifically serving e-commerce providers, and a growing number of connections with China, by Fedex, ASL Belgium and now Air China Cargo, Liege Airport is creating opportunities for exporters and importers willing to seize the opportunities offered by e-commerce to grow their business.”
With its headquarters in Beijing, Air China Cargo uses Shanghai as its main air freighter operation base and is China's only cargo airline operating under the national flag. Air China Cargo has three B747-400 air freighters, eight B777F air freighters and four B757-200SF air freighters in total.
