First direct cargo flights over Taiwan Straits

CHINA Airlines has launched the first cross-straits cargo charter flight between Taiwan and both Shanghai and Guangzhou. As reported in Air Cargo News, this is the first direct traffic between the two since 1949.

Using a Boeing 747-400F freighter, the carrier will operate eight flights per months to Shanghai and seven to Guangzhou carrying mainly electrical goods and fruit. It will provide some cargo space for China Cargo Airlines and China Southern Airlines.
