Spring Festival peak season has arrived for China Southern Airlines
The approaching cold temperatures, snow, and rain will influence various modes of transportation to varying degrees. However, many consumers opt for air freight when it comes to electronics and fresh food products, because truck transport suffers the most from cold weather, and these are high-end products with a particular vulnerability during transport delays. From January 24th onward, the daily transport volume of China Southern Airlines exceeded 400 tons. Furthermore, this number is rising with every passing day. Since January 26th there have been several successive days where the transport volume exceeded 500 tons.
