China’s civil aviation regulator will now allow carriers to operate all-cargo flights at Beijing’s two airports, lifting restrictions that only allowed them to pick one of the two.
Previously, only Chinese cargo carrier China Postal Airlines was allowed to operate at both airports, while other airlines could only choose either airport to operate from.
Airlines need now to only make a single application to get approval, the authority states.
In April,2020, Chinese and international carriers mounted an average of 1574 cargo flights a week. This was a 55.2% year-on-year increase.
