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.
