Atran Airlines creates new route from Xi’an to Moscow

Atran Airlines has launched a new route linking Xi’an, China, with Moscow, Russia.

The first flight was operated by one of Atran’s Boeing 737-400SF aircraft with further plans for Boeing 737-800BCF deployment to be able to guarantee up to 23 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight.

Xi’an Xianyang International Airport, the second largest airport in Northern China, offers less congestion and is welcoming new air cargo carriers to accommodate the emerging growth of cross-border e-commerce shipments between China and Russia.

Dmitry Obsharov, general director of Atran Airlines, commented: “Embracing new destinations and leveraging emerging markets for cross-border shipments are on the radar of our business development.

“With global e-commerce growing at 20% per year and forecast for a nearly 15% uptick in Russia over the next three-four years, the demand for high-quality air cargo services will be high. We are ready to guarantee this in close partnership with Russian Post and China Post.”
