Yuantong Airlines have begun a regular cargo service between Pakistan’s Karachi and China’s Xinjiang Kashgar as the first cargo plane loaded with 9.25 tons of goods, mainly refrigerated sea food, arrived at Kashgar Airport.
This is the first international regular cargo route to Pakistan opened by Kashgar Airport and the sixth international full cargo flight route launched by Xinjiang Airport Group in 2019.
The airline will operate a Boeing B757-200F, a full cargo aircraft once a week on the route.
The opening of this route is of significance to the construction of the “International Shipping Corridor” and “International Aviation Hub” of Xinjiang Airport Group.
It is also beneficial for China and Pakistan as it will promote trade exchanges, build an air channel and service platform for economic and trade development in Xinjiang and South Asia.
