China Airlines adds Taoyuan-Shenzhen cargo service

Taipei, March 21 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan's largest airline company, started cargo shipping on a new route between the northern city of Taoyuan and southeastern Chinese city of Shenzhen Saturday. The airline will operate three flights per week on this route using Boeing 747-400F jets, the carrier said. The airline is hoping to explore the shipping market in China and said it believes the new route could meet the growing demand for shipment of consumer electronics and express air parcel as Shenzhen is a major hub for e-commerce and online shopping. Eyeing more lucrative cargo business in 2015, CAL said it hopes the route could help establish a more comprehensive shipping network across the Taiwan Strait. The Taoyuan-Shenzhen service will bring CAL's total cross-strait cargo operations to 17 flights per week, covering the destinations of Shanghai, Nanjing, Chongqing, Xiamen, Zhengzhou and Guangzhou.
