CARGOLUX has postponed the inauguration of its regular scheduled B747F services to Zhengzhou, the capital of Chinese province Henan, for the second time.
The flights, which were due to begin on April 24, will now commence on June 14 after previously being rescheduled to May 29.
“Unforeseen procedural changes in the manner in which information has to be submitted to and approved by the relevant aviation authorities in China” is behind the delay.
The airline is confident that the relevant final operational authorisations will be received in due course, says a company statement.
“Cargolux has maintained a close and ongoing dialog with the Civil Aviation Authority of China, in order to get Zhengzhou approved as a regular commercial destination,” it adds.
