Ningbo and Zhoushan, two cities in East China's Zhejiang province, recently announced that they would share each other's freight flight routes.
This means cargo from the island city of Zhoushan can be transported to the Ningbo airport before being loaded to freighters bound for other places, and vice versa.
In recent years, the Zhejiang provincial aviation authorities have been actively promoting the integration of aviation resources to extend the air cargo service network and reduce logistics costs of companies.
Ningbo currently has such agreements with three cities in Zhejiang. Besides Zhoushan, the other two cities are Hangzhou and Yiwu.
To date, the Ningbo airport has opened seven cargo routes to places including Osaka, Los Angeles, Chicago as well as Shenzhen and Taipei.
