China sees improvement in air cargo capacity

July 14, 2020


Abstract : China's air cargo capacity has gained improvement thanks to a series of targeted measures, especially those ensuring international freight transport, according to the civil aviation authorities.

BEIJING, July 13 (Xinhua) -- China's air cargo capacity has gained improvement thanks to a series of targeted measures, especially those ensuring international freight transport, according to the civil aviation authorities.

In June, China maintained regular cargo flights to 105 overseas air destinations in 45 countries, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

Chinese and foreign airliners carried 2,390 scheduled cargo flights on a weekly basis in June.

The figure represented a 135.7-percent increase compared with the number of flights before the COVID-19 pandemic and a 203.3-percent increase from that in mid-February.

China has introduced measures such as simplifying approval procedures and offering more flight timetable choices to ensure the efficient transport of anti-pandemic supplies and the global supply chain, according to the CAAC.

Other measures include optimized cargo flights management, green channel on international cargo flights approvement and the safety notice on passenger aircraft on cargo missions, etc.

The comprehensive measures and supporting policies helped carriers at home and abroad release cargo transport capacity in use of their all-cargo freighters and passenger aircraft, said the CAAC. Enditem
