Shenzhen-Jakarta New Cargo Route to Import ASEAN Fresh Produce

Central Airlines Co., Ltd. of Shenzhen, China, has recently launched a new international cargo flight line route, “Shenzhen-Jakarta,” which will operate six times a week, with a weekly capacity of more than 120 tons. The new route is mainly for transporting fresh seafood from Indonesia and other ASEAN countries into Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport in South China. However, the route will also carry tropical fruits like durian and bananas in the future.

After the opening of this route, Shenzhen Airport will have almost 100 cargo flights to ASEAN countries every week. This will lead to a deeper level of cooperation and closer trade relationships between China and ASEAN, particularly with the implementation of the RCEP agreement in 2022.
