Mexico-based cargo airline mas, formerly known as MasAir, has added scheduled flights to China for the first time as it looks to expand its network into Asia.
The new service will be operated by mas for Chinese forwarder Universal Translink Aviation Transportation Service ( UTA) and will connect Mexico City International Airport (MEX) and Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport (CGO) twice a week.
The airline said it will increase the schedule to CGO three times each week in July, with plans to add another route to China via Chongqing-Jiangbei International Airport (CKG) in the same month.
The flights will be operated with the recently delivered A330-200P2F (with registration EI-MAA) to mas, with a capacity of 60 tonnes each way. The new flights come as the airline has been rapidly expanding its fleet over recent months.
