Air freight route links Wuhan with Japan's city Osaka

Xinhua,May 11, 2020 Adjust font size:

A new air freight route was launched on Sunday linking Wuhan, the capital city of central China's Hubei Province, and Japan's Osaka Prefecture.

The flight, loaded with more than 9.6 tonnes of epidemic prevention and control supplies and exported clothes, took off at 2:36 p.m. on Sunday from Wuhan Tianhe International Airport.

Its the first international regular air freight route to be opened since the airport resumed operation on April 8.

The all-cargo air route is operated by a Boeing 737-900 aircraft of a private airline of OKAIR, and the aircraft is scheduled to fly seven times per week, with a maximum load of 15 tonnes, according to Tang Mingbo, from the Hubei Airports Group.

Another regular air freight route will open in late May to link Wuhan and Tokyo. Enditem
