From 01JUL24, China Cargo Airlines will have access to Air France’s belly capacity for shipments from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) to São Paulo Guarulhos Airport (GRU). Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and China Cargo Airlines signed a new, hard Block Space Agreement to this end, last week. The two airline companies, united also under SkyTeam Cargo, have been partners for ten years already. Air France KLM and the China Eastern Group then set out initially with an interline agreement.
