Uni-top adds European coverage

Uni-top Airlines has introduced a freighter service connecting Liège, Belgium to Wuhan, China, using a Boeing 747-400F.

Uni-top will operate three flights per week. The Chinese airline expects European manufacturers of automotive parts, particularly from Germany and the UK, to utilise the route in order to ship components to China.

This is the latest European cargo route opened by the Chinese airline, after the introduction of a service from Luxembourg to Wuhan in January. The opening of these two air cargo routes will help Europe and China to share the benefits of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), adds Uni-top.

At present, Uni-top Airlines owns 11 wide-body freighters, including three B747-200Fs, one B747-400F, and seven A300-600Fs.
