Geodis’ Airbus A330-300 freighter has operated between Italy and China for the first time.
Geodis said its leased A330-300F departed from Malpensa airport and flew to Shanghai.
The company leased the freighter last year. Air Cargo News understands it is this freighter that the company used for the flight, but has requested confirmation from Geodis.
In a LinkedIn post the company said: “GEODIS in Italy is proud to have hosted our Airbus A330-300 freighter at Malpensa airport last week. It’s the first time GEODIS freighter operates between Italy and China!
“With a total weight of 30 tons, the operation was successfully completed and reached its final destination: Shanghai.”
In January, AirAsia X formed a new air logistics partnership with Geodis to provide additional cargo capacity in Asia Pacific.
