This Wednesday, a new cargo air route opened that links the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou with Bangkok, Thailand's capital. The air service is operated by Tianjin Air Cargo, using a Boeing B737-800F aircraft.
It mainly exports cross-border e-commerce goods and cold chain imports fresh products such as live Thai shrimp and fruit. The service is scheduled five times a week.
The new route will improve the freight route network of the Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport, facilitate cross-border logistics service and the imports of seafood and fruit from Thailand, according to the Henan Province Airport Group.
Zhengzhou, the capital city of central China's Henan Province, has a population of over 10 million. Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport saw 27.3 million passengers and 515,000 tonnes of cargo in 2018.
