The maiden flight, which carried 100 tonnes of e-commerce products, took off on Sunday. Cross-border businesses in Shenzhen and surrounding cities can now deliver products to Brazilian consumers in just over a week, said Chinese media reports quoting the Shenzhen airport.
Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport and Cainiao Network have launched a new cargo air route between Shenzhen and Sao Paulo.
The route, operated by Atlas Air’s Boeing 747 all-cargo aircraft, will run two flights weekly, carrying e-commerce products.
The opening of the route is expected to stimulate cross-border e-commerce trade between China and Brazil.
The Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport has cooperated with airlines and logistics operators to open new cross-border air routes, with the volume of air transportation of cross-border products up by 70 per cent year on year.
In 2022, the bilateral trade between Brazil and China was $171.49 billion, a year-on-year (YoY) growth of 4.9 per cent, as per China’s General Administration of Customs.
