Transaero launches cargo service to Beijing

Russia’s leading carrier, Transaero Airlines, has launched a freighter service to China.
Transaero delivered 22.4 tonnes of mail on the first flight between Beijing and Novosibirsk using one of the airline’s pair of new Tupolev Tu-204C aircraft. The year old aircraft will be regular performers on the route.
The airline is seeking closer links with China having recently entered into a partnership agreement with the country’s largest Bank, ICBC, both to attract future funding and, through ICBC Leasing, to facilitate the purchase of Airbus A321 aircraft.
“We regard the launch of scheduled cargo flights to China as another step in facilitating the development of business links between the two countries,” said Transaero chief executive Olga Pleshakova.
