Korean Air launches cargo flights to Chengdu

09-21-2011 13:54 BJT

SEOUL, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Korean Air Lines Co., South Korea' s largest carrier, announced Wednesday the launch of regular cargo flights from Incheon International Airport to the city of Chengdu in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Korean Air planed to operate cargo flights every Wednesday and Friday starting Sept. 21, according to the company.

Chengdu has emerged as production bases of many global information and technology firms, including Apple Inc. and Dell Inc.

Korean Air's move came based on expectations that demand for transportation of industrial goods in and out of the Chinese city would constantly grow as more tech firms were seeking a production foothold in the city, said Korean Air in a statement.

With the launch of the Incheon-Chengdu route for cargo flights, Korean Air aimed to step up its efforts to advance into the Chinese market, according to the statement.
