China's Uni-top Airlines launches Luxembourg freighter service
Jan 18, 2019: On January 13, China-based Uni-top Airlines started their new scheduled service between their hub in Wuhan, Central China and Luxembourg.
The airline will operate the service thrice weekly with a leased B747-400.
The flights will land in Luxembourg early morning on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and leave after a regular ground time back to Wuhan.
Uni-top Airlines will also benefit in Luxembourg of the extended and efficient trucking network to connect to all major European hubs as well as to arrange direct deliveries to their major customers.
The central location, the state of the art infrastructure as well as the renowned ramp and warehouse handling services by LuxairCARGO makes it the preferred choice for Uni-top Airlines.
In fact, in 2007 already, Uni-top Airlines established their European headquarter at the Luxair Cargocenter. During the early years, Uni-top organized series of charter operations through Luxembourg using various carriers to perform the flights.
Today Uni-top Group is the leading logistics provider in Central China providing warehousing, trucking, airfreight and express services. They currently operate on the domestic and intra-Asia routes seven A300-600 aircraft. Part of their newly added capacity is being managed by China Merchant (affiliated company of Sinotrans) which is also based in Luxembourg and has their offices at the Cargocenter.
The event was officially celebrated on January 15 at Luxembourg Airport.
