“This goes for both import of vital supplies to the European health systems and import of goods to our regular commercial customers. But also on the export side, we see an increasing demand.

“Therefore, we have decided to invest in this temporary scheduled service.”

The first chartered flight took place on May 6.

The eastbound service departs from Copenhagen every Tuesday and Saturday, arriving in Shanghai the following day.

The westbound service departs from Shanghai each Wednesday and Sunday, arriving the same day in Copenhagen on the same day.
