Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport’s cargo handling volume exceeded 1.5m tonnes in 2021.

The local transport bureau said cargo throughput is up 12% year on year, according to China’s state press agency, Xinhua.

Shenzhen handled about 318,000 flights last year, 85.9% of that in 2019, according to the bureau.

The airport increased the frequency of 11 international air cargo routes in 2021. The number of airfreight destinations hit 51, a record high.

Located in the Pearl River Delta, Shenzhen Bao’an has a 7,700,000 sq m airfield and a cargo facility encompassing 1,660,000 sq m.

The airport plays a part in China’s “Belt and Road” infrastructure development initiative to invest in nearly 70 countries and international organisations.

Last year, Shenzhen Bao’an benefited from diverted air cargo shipments from Shanghai Pudong International Airport, following COVID-10-induced delays at Shanghai Pudong.
