The Luxembourg-based carrier’s chief executive and president, Dirk Reich, described the 747-8-operated service as “a milestone in the development of our Chinese operations and the cooperation with our partner HNCA.”
The Chicago services are expected to increase to four weekly round trips before the end of the year, he added.
