Geodis confirms Shanghai freighter flights

[ September 24, 2020   //   ]

Geodis has confirmed a schedule of return flights between China and Europe and back, through to early 2021, as part of its own controlled AirDirect service. The forwarder originally instigated full aircraft charter arrangements on this route in March with ad hoc flights and introduced a weekly timetable in June to meet the urgent need for air cargo capacity which had diminished due to the effects of the pandemic. Now, with freighter and passenger belly-hold space still in short supply, the logistics provider has announced a permanent schedule reaching into next year.  Weekly direct flights will depart from Shanghai every Monday and from Amsterdam (AMS) each Sunday to service demand in the traditional fourth quarter peak.
