NORTHERN China's Shijiazhuang airport has inaugurated an all-cargo Korean service to Seoul, Xinhua reports.

This is Shijiazhuang airport's first international cargo service and is jointly operated by China Postal Airlines and Asia Pacific Cargo (APC). It offers three flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, using Boeing 737-300 freighter that can carry up to 16 tonnes. The flight takes off at 1200 hrs from Shijiazhuang, reaches Seoul at 1340 hrs, then returns from Seoul at 1450 hrs to land at Shijiazhuang at 1700 hrs.

International cargo services have been absent at the Shijiazhuang airport as the city does not have a steady source of cargo. Some of the local shipments used to have to transit via Beijing or Tianjin. The authority is hoping the new international cargo service can attract more manufacturers to set up factories in the city.
