Qantas Freighter to Chongqing
18 / 04 / 2012
QANTAS Freight Enterprises launches a weekly scheduled freighter service from Sydney (Australia) to the Chinese manufacturing hub of Chongqing.
The new service, which starts on the 20 April, will depart from Sydney on Friday evenings to arrive at Chongqing’s Jiangbai International Airport on Saturday mornings.
The aircraft will then continue on to Chicago (US) on the same day via Shanghai (China) before returning to Sydney early Monday morning.
Qantas Freight executive manager Lisa Brock says: “China has sustained its position as one of the business’ most important growth markets.”
“With the addition of Chongqing we will market freight capacity to nine ports in mainland China including Shanghai, Gulin, Haikou, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Shantou, Guangzhou and Beijing,” adds Brock.
Qantas Freight – the international air freight division of the Qantas Group – markets the freight capacity on Qantas and Jetstar international passenger aircraft. It operates a fleet of three Boeing 747s and one Boeing 767F aircraft.
