A new scheduled air freight route linking Wuhan, the capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, and the US cities of Dallas and LA, was launched on Sunday.
An all-cargo flight GG4856 loaded with 110 tons of exports took off from Wuhan Tianhe International Airport at 12:05 pm on Sunday for Dallas.
Three flights are scheduled every week using Boeing 747 freighters. This is the third intercontinental regular air freight route departing from Wuhan Tianhe International Airport, and also the only all-cargo freight route to Dallas. After arriving in Dallas, the aircraft will continue to fly to Los Angeles.
The exported cargos, mainly consisting of electronic products, mechanical components and e-commerce commodities, will be transported to major cities in the US.
By the end of July, 30 destinations overseas for air freight lines of Wuhan Tianhe International Airport have been in operation, including Liege, Chicago, Manila and Singapore.
