Schiphol gains a new China connection

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has expanded its Asian connections with a new twice-weekly B777F service from Amsterdam to Chongqing by China Southern Airlines. The airport has been actively working to boost its trade links with Asia and this recent service to Chongqing brings the total number of freighter routes from Schiphol to China to nine. Other Chinese cities linked to the Netherlands-based airport include Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Yantai and Chengdu. “As China Southern Airlines is a member of SkyTeam, these new flights offer immediate potential for connections with Air France-KLM over Schiphol, giving both airlines access to their respective networks,” Schiphol Cargo senior VP Enno Osinga said. “Our links with China will develop further when China Eastern joins SkyTeam, as this would allow both China Cargo Airlines and Air France-KLM to tap into China Eastern’s domestic network as well.”
