Two of China’s major express companies have applied for more flights to/from Beijing. And not just one or two more, but almost seven more every day.
- According to a report in the China Aviation Daily, YTO Express Airlines, the recently-launched air arm of Shanghai-based YTO Express, applied to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for fourteen weekly round trip flights between Beijing and its hub in Hangzhou.
- SF Airlines, the air arm of Shenzhen-based SF Express, has been in operation much longer than YTO Express Airlines, and has a much bigger fleet, so no surprise that it has applied for many more flights to and from Beijing – 14 weekly round trips to/from Wuxi, ten weekly round trips to/from Shenzhen and six weekly to/from Hangzhou.
Just more evidence (as if any was needed) of the increasing demand for express delivery in China.
