The largest all-cargo airline in Russia has started a new freight service to Zhengzhou in China. The airline already operates routes from Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai to Russia and other major centres in Europe. The new flights are operating three times a week from Maastricht and Amsterdam in the Netherlands through Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk in Russia and on to Zhengzhou.
The flights began operating in the middle of August and will link north central China with Europe. Much of the freight carried will be high tech goods.
