An SF Airlines flight carrying 11.33 metric tons of waxberries from Taizhou, Zhejiang province, took off from Taizhou Airport, heading directly to Ezhou Huahu International Airport in Hubei province, in the wee hours on June 18.

This marks the launch of the first all-cargo flight route at Taizhou Airport, signaling the integration of Taizhou's distinctive agricultural products into the national logistics network via air transport.

Ezhou Huahu International Airport is the largest transit center for SF Express. Previously, Taizhou's waxberries had to be transported to the Hangzhou and Wenzhou airports before reaching Ezhou, which took at least 4 to 5 hours.

With the new freight route at Taizhou Airport, it takes just over an hour to transport waxberries to the transit center directly.

The first all-cargo flight route of Taizhou Airport will operate one round trip every day from Taizhou to Ezhou and Taizhou to Beijing between June 18 and 27, mainly transporting seasonal fruits from Taizhou. It is expected to help more than 400 tons of waxberries and other fruits be promptly distributed all over the country.

The new air route allows Taizhou's unique products and delicacies to be more easily distributed to consumers around the country, said Tu Jiang, deputy general manager of Taizhou Airport.
