Air freight service brings surge in AU exports to ChinaA nonstop service between Adelaide and Guangzhou in December 2016, is said to have brought a surge in air exports between Southern Australia and China. Trade within this route has grown by 37% in the past 12 months, adding a value of $22 mln annually.
The international service; "greatly improved South Australian exporters avenues to market, creating faster, cheaper and more regular services," said AAL chief executive Mark Young.
The air export service has been dominated by perishable good, with ag products accounting for 82% of total export volumes in the past financial year.
China Southern announced on Wednesday the 787-9 will be a permanent feature on the route.
This air-freight trend will likely increase, after Qatar announced that its Adelaide-Doha service will now be offered daily, as opposed to 5 days a week and Air New Zealand is also offering 25 tonnes of freight on each of its three services a week.
