JD Airlines has launched its inaugural international freighter route connecting China and Vietnam to cater for cross-border e-commerce demand. The new service is run in partnership with airline services company CSAA and will operate three times per week using a Boeing 737-800BCF. In China, the service will operate to Shenzhen, while in Vietnam it will call at Ho Chi Minh City.
The e-commerce company said: “The route is optimised to primarily transport cross-border e-commerce parcels from China to Vietnam, while also facilitating the shipment of key agricultural exports—such as fruit and seafood—from Vietnam to China.”
JD Airlines, formerly known as JD Logistics Airlines, received an air carrier certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in September last year.
