Uni-top Airlines has added a new route from Liege Airport to Wuhan Wuhan Tianhe International Airport which it is operating with a Boeing 747-400 Freighter.
This is the latest European cargo route opened by the carrier after the start of its route from Luxembourg Airport to Wuhan on 26 January, 2018.
In half a year, the Chinese private airline has opened two air cargo routes departing from Wuhan, China, an international channel for trade and logistics between European countries and China.
This new route has three flights per week, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, starting in Liege and arriving in Wuhan the next day.
The flights use Boeing’s 747-400F aircraft, which has a maximum capacity of 110 tonnes. At present, European manufacturers of automobile parts, particularly from Germany and the UK are utilising the route to ship to China.
Similarly, Chinese companies specializing in electronics, fashion, and machine parts have been facilitated in shipping their products to Europe on the route.
Uni-top Airlines was established in 2008 and is the first Chinese private airline to independently operate long-range freighter aircraft. As early as 2009, Uni-top Airlines started to operate three Boeing 747-200Fs at Wuhan Tianhe.
At present, Uni-top Airlines operates 11 widebody freighters, including three Boeing 747-200Fs, one Boeing 747-400F, and seven Airbus A300-600Fs.
