Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services has connected Chongqing with Africa and the Americas on a weekly cargo flight.

The weekly Boeing 777-200 Freighter service was launched on 26 June and passes through Shanghai – Chongqing – Delhi – Addis Ababa – Lagos – Sao Paulo – Quito – Miami.

Located in southwest China adjacent to Hunan, Hubei, Guizhou, Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces, Chongqing serves as a hub of China’s Belt and Road initiative linking the country to its neighbours.

Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines says: “Our new cargo service augments the development of China-Africa bilateral trade and expands on China’s already growing ‘Belt and Road’ initiative while supporting our strategic initiatives to expand our global cargo operations.”
