Russian cargo airline ATRAN has launched a new route connecting Shenzhen, China, with Cologne/ Bonn, Germany.
The route will be operated on a weekly basis aboard Boeing 737-800BCF aircraft.
“Our decision to introduce connection between Shenzhen and Cologne/ Bonn goes in line with our network expansion strategy and follows the needs of our Asian customers amid growing volumes of various types of cargo. This is the second flight ex China we are offering to Cologne which serves as an excellent alternative EU gateway for many Chinese exporters. Our customers could benefit from direct links ex Xi’an and Shenzhen.”
ATRAN currently operates a fleet of Boeing 737 freighters, linking China with Russia and Europe.
The airline recently enlarged its fleet of B737 freighters, which now consists of three Boeing 737-400SF and six B737-800BCF aircraft.
