Hangzhou in East China's Zhejiang province launched a cargo flight route to Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, on July 16, local media reported.
An airplane carrying 42 tons of exports including sanitary products, loudspeakers, and PE gloves set off for Prague that same day.
This is the first cargo flight route converted from a passenger air route between the two cities and also the seventh such air route launched by Hangzhou.
Three flights are expected to operate the route every week.
The cargo route will shorten the delivery time of Hangzhou's exports to Central and Eastern Europe and reduce operational costs for companies.
