Air China Cargo launches service to Liege

Comment on this article

On June 7, Air China Cargo launched a weekly flight between Liege airport and Shanghai with a Boeing 777-200.

Ground and cargo handling operations for the new service will be provided by Liege Air Cargo Handling Services (LACHS), owned by CAL Cargo Airlines.

The early start-up of the operation was agreed at the Air Cargo Europe exhibition in Munich last month, after Air China Cargo met with the Liege airport community at the airport’s exhibition stand during the event.

Steven Verhasselt, VP Commercial at Liege airport, commented: “We welcome Air China Cargo into the Liege Airport Cargo Community. We will support them in order to achieve the joint goal of expanding the operation and increasing regular flights.”

The move is expected to open up additional opportunities within the growing area of e-commerce. Verhasselt added, “With Flexpress, specifically serving e-commerce providers, and a growing number of connections with China, by Fedex, ASL Belgium and now Air China Cargo, Liege airport is creating opportunities for exporters and importers willing to seize the opportunities offered by e-commerce to grow their business.”
