Partnership Should Benefit Both Singapore Airlines Cargo and China Cargo Airlines

Singapore Airlines Cargo and China Cargo Airlines have inked a deal to begin operating joint freighters services between Singapore Changi Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport on June 26.

The amalgamation of services comes 18 months after SIA Cargo purchased a 16-percent stake in the Chinese freight carrier.

Zhu Yimin, president of China Cargo Airlines, said that the joint services will enable SIA Cargo and China Cargo Airlines to "tap into each other's networks" via their respective hubs in Singapore and Shanghai.
