Air China Cargo Launches Schiphol Schedule

Air China Cargo has begun scheduled freighter flights into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol for the first time.
Following ad-hoc charters in August, the inaugural Air China Cargo scheduled flight arrived on September 12th, and was met with the customary water arch salute courtesy of Schiphol’s fire services.
The new Boeing 747-400 services are initially operating five times weekly from Shanghai,
via Chengdu or Chonqing while flights return via Tianjin.  The airline has slots for up to ten flights per week from Amsterdam.
Some of the new services into Schiphol replace flights to Frankfurt.
Air China Cargo’s Executive Vice Present and CFO, Mr Huang Bin said: “Our new
Amsterdam freighter service should be the first choice for customers who need
direct service between the Netherlands and Northern China.  This is now the third Air China Cargo freighter route serving Europe, which demonstrates our pioneering spirit in the current market recovery, and our great confidence in the prospects for the air cargo market between China and the Netherlands.”
Withthe arrival of Air China Cargo freighter services, Schiphol is the only European airport to serve all three major Chinese freighter operators.
The airline has appointed Swissport as its ground handling agent at Schiphol.
