CHANGSHA, July 27 (Xinhua) -- A new international air cargo route linking Changsha, capital of central China's Hunan Province, and Addis Ababa in Ethiopia was launched, Changsha Customs said on Wednesday.
The air cargo route, the first between Hunan and Africa, is operated by Ethiopian Airlines, with two flights of Boeing 777 all-cargo aircraft each week.
The opening of the cargo route will further enrich the international route network of the Changsha Huanghua Airport and build an air bridge between Hunan and Africa, according to the airport.
Since this year, the airport has restored and added six international air cargo routes. ■
