China Air Group Approves All-Cargo Carrier, Another to Follow

In early December of last year, the CAAC granted initial approval to the establishment of the new all-cargo carrier, a joint venture of Joy Air Holding, Guangzhou Donlinks Group and Beijing Fuda Asset Management. Certification was expected to follow fairly quickly, but, in mid-2016, the CAAC put the approval process for new airlines on hold, partly to weed out applications from carriers trying to use the relatively easy path to all-cargo certification with the intent of switching to passenger operation following approval, the CAAC said.

But the CAAC eventually lifted its hold, and the approval process for China Air Cargo Corp is now nearing its end. The carrier may take to the skies by the end of this month — with another carrier whose approval was also stalled, taking off  shortly after. It will be based at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN), from which it will offer both domestic and international cargo and mail service, using 757-200PCFs and Chinese-made MA600Fs.
