Air Cargo Global opened its new direct route between Avinor Oslo Airport and Tianjin Binhai International Airport in China on Thursday, 17 January 2019.
The new route will initially operate twice a week on Thursday and Saturday.
“We aim to step up to three weekly departures from March if the market responds well to the increased capacity,” says Peter Scholten, Chief Commercial Officer of Air Cargo Global.
The reason of open this new flight is because Cargo intends to reach Chinese markets quickly and efficiently since the demand of China for fresh Norwegian seafood is now increasing.
“We have reached an agreement with Fish Forever, a major Chinese trading company that specialises in fish. They contacted us wanting to look into the possibility of importing fresh Norwegian seafood directly to China, because demand for high quality fresh fish is on the increase in the Chinese market,” Scholten said.
Moreover, Martin Langaas, Director of Cargo at Avinor also added “It is very pleasing that Air Cargo Global is now able to offer direct freight capacity to China, a market that has an ever-increasing need for a supply of fresh Norwegian seafood.”
