Xiamen, in southeast China, has partnered with Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services to offer an air cargo and logistics service to São Paulo, Brazil. This partnership is in cooperation with Ethiopian Airlines, the logistics arm of Ethiopian Airlines.

The new freight transfer path will assist support the development of aviation logistics among Brazil, Russia, & India. This will help increase trade and commerce between these three countries, and help create jobs in the aviation industry. This will help promote the growth of trade and commerce between the three countries, and help boost the development of aviation in all three countries. Ethiopian Airlines Greater China & Mongolia’s chief representative, Tekle G/Yohannes, said this in a press release.

China is Brazil’s largest trading partner and Fujian Province is a significant player in that relationship. The opening of the new cargo route will lower the cost of logistics and help boost cross-border e-commerce. Xiamen, a major hub for Fujian’s trade with Brazil, will be especially benefited.

This cargo route will be operated by a Boeing B777F freighter, and it will have two weekly freighter flights connecting China’s Xiamen with São Paulo and Santiago in Brazil via Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This will provide a reliable and efficient route for cargo shipments between China and Brazil. The main exports of the service sector are high-value-added products, such as medical and technological products and integrated circuits.

Ethiopian Airlines is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its first passenger flight to China with new service. The airline is emphasizing the importance of its relationship with China, which it says has been a cornerstone of its success.
