Singapore Airlines Cargo Signs Joint Service Agreement With China Cargo Airlines

  Singapore Airlines Cargo and China Cargo Airlines will operate joint freighter

services between Singapore and Shanghai from 26 June 2012.

“We have anticipated a greater partnership with China Cargo Airlines since we

signed the joint venture agreement in 2010. The new joint service agreement

provides more flexibility and better services to customers as it provides more

choices of flights for air cargo shipments between Singapore and China,” said

Singapore Airlines Cargo’s President, Mr Tan Kai Ping.


China Cargo Airlines’ President, Mr Zhu Yimin, added: “The joint freighter services

will enable the two airlines to tap into each other’s network through our hubs at

Shanghai and Singapore. There will be more direct access to destinations in

domestic China on China Cargo’s network whilst we will be able to tap on

Singapore Airlines Cargo’s network in the Middle East, Africa, Australia and Latin

America, thereby providing a more comprehensive and extensive network for

customers of both airlines.”

The joint freighter services are part of wide-ranging initiatives between the two

airlines. These include enhanced system integration and more integrated ground

handling at the carriers’ respective hubs at Pudong International Airport, Shanghai

and Singapore Changi Airport to improve transshipment times.

SIA Cargo owns a 16% equity interest in Shanghai-based China Cargo Airlines Co

Ltd.
