Following the successful operation in Nanjing & Tianjin, Dutch freighter specialist Martinair Cargo has extended its network in China with the start of a weekly Boeing 747 freighter service between Xiamen and Amsterdam from last month. The fl ights will operate every Sunday on the route Xiamen-Bangkok- Sharjah-Amsterdam. Martinair will offer capacity to Europe as well as to its cargo hubs in Bangkok & Sharjah. Cargo from Europe to Xiamen will be accommodated on Martinair’s fl ights every Saturday on the route Amsterdam- Sharjah-Tianjin-Xiamen.

Xiamen is located on the southeastern coast of Fujian Province and its economy is growing rapidly as an increasingly popular site for foreign investors. Xiamen has become a “window city” for China’s opening to the outside world since its establishment as one of China’s fi rst four Special Economic Zones in 1981.
