The aircraft will arrive in Munich on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Amsterdam, and on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from Brussels before departing for Tianjin and then Shanghai.
The opening of the new freighter route for the southern Germany hub was marked by a special ceremony at Munich Airport.
