Wuhan-Bel­gium cargo air route opens

Changjiang Weekly - - TOP NEWS - By Zhang Quanlu

A Bel­gium-bound all-cargo flight took off from Wuhan Tianhe In­ter­na­tional Air­port on July 20. Af­ter Chicago and Lux­em­bourg, this is the third in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal all-cargo air route start­ing from Wuhan.

The flight, which uti­lizes a Boe­ing 747-400 and is op­er­ated by Uni-top Air­lines, takes off three times a week and de­liv­ers up to 2,000 tons monthly to Liege. The vir­gin two-way flight was nearly fully loaded with im­ports like auto parts from Ger­many and the U.K. and ex­ports like elec­tronic prod­ucts, gar­ments and ac­ces­sories.

Liege Air­port is the largest cargo air­port in Bel­gium and an im­por­tant air freight hub in Europe.
