CHINA Southern Airlines has inaugurated an all-cargo service from its Guangzhou base that flies to Qingdao and then to Los Angeles, shortening transit from Qingdao to LA to 12 hours, Xinhua reports.

The new service uses Boeing 777-200 freighters, offering two flights per week on Mondays and Thursdays that takes off at 0345 hrs from Guangzhou, leaves Qingdao at 0850 and reaches LA at 2035 Beijing time. Shipments can be carried to 85 cities across North America via the air-truck intermodal service.

This is the second inter-continental cargo flight service from Qingdao. The first is also to LA, operated by mainland China-based Yangtze River Express Airlines.

Lufthansa will also launch an all-cargo service from Qingdao via northeastern city Shenyang to Frankfurt in March. Besides, Korea Air, Asiana, All Nippon Airways and Dragonair are also going to increase their frequencies from Qingdao.
