China Postal Airlines transfers to Lukou


China Postal Airlines transferred to Nanjing Lukou Airport as its base of operations on July 16. Last May, China Post and the Nanjing municipal government signed a cooperation agreement for the Nanjing China Post Air Express Logistics Center. The project was inaugurated last December, and is expected to be finished next year. China Postal Airlines originally planned to transfer to Lukou Airport after the completion of the project. But to get familiar with the new base, the airline decided for an early transfer of its postal express parcel distribution center from Shanghai Hongqiao Airport. The airline’s eight aircraft, consisting of six B737-300 and two Y8 freighters, will transfer to Lukou Airport. After the transfer, there will be at least 16 flights operating daily at the Lukou Airport, with 102 aircraft movements each week. The transfer of China Postal Airlines will boost Lukou Airport’s annual cargo and mail throughput to almost 40,000 tons a year, which will exceed that of Hangzhou Airport. As the base and distribution center of China Postal Airlines, Lukou Airport will increase its air mail transport network capacity. The postal service of 18 areas -- such as Suzhou, Wuxi and Maanshan -- will be delivered to Lukou Airport. It is expected that the transfer will expedite the development of the Nanjing area service industry and economy, and promote the Nanjing Changjiang International Transport Logistics Center and Jiangsu Modern Service Industry Center.
