China Southern Airlines has launched a new B777F freighter service between Los Angeles International Airport and Tianjin, China.
The 13-hour direct service marks the only dedicated cargo route linking Tianjin and North America.
China Southern Cargo, a proud member of SkyTeam Cargo, will also launch Los Angeles-Tianjin-Shanghai cargo service, starting 5 September.
China Southern can now offer 135 tonnes of cargo capacity from Los Angeles to Tianjin per week. Approximately 200 tonne of online shopping is being moved from America to Tianjin each month and 85 per cent of online shipping is being moved through Los Angeles to Tianjin.
With the addition of cargo service to Shanghai and “belly cargo” on China Southern’s daily A380 commercial flights between Guangzhou and China, commercial clients now have abundant options to move freight to each of these important business markets as the two new routes will be connected with China Southern’s domestic network through the carrier’s twin hubs in Guangzhou and Shanghai.
