At 14:00 on April 29, flight SC2219 of shandong airlines was loaded with 15 tons of epidemic prevention supplies and cross-border e-commerce parcels, and took off from liuting airport in Qingdao to Osaka, Japan. This is the first "passenger to cargo" scheduled flight of shandong airlines from Qingdao.
Qingdao - Osaka goods clearance day, the next day delivery
Besides epidemic prevention materials such as masks, clothing, express samples and cross-border e-commerce parcels such as mail delivered by shandong post, the cargo transported by the first "passenger to cargo" flight of shandong airlines weighs 15 tons in total.
Compared with the passenger cargo guarantee, the "passenger cargo replacement" flight can carry more cargo, so the loading and unloading time and the number of supporting personnel need to be increased by about three times. Cargo loading in the cabin shall be secured by cargo net and strapping. The front-line staff of shanhang cargo started the loading work three hours ahead of schedule, and the flight left the port on time. During the epidemic period, there were no direct flights from Qingdao to Osaka, Japan, and the goods had to be transferred to other ports for customs clearance. After the launch of the all-cargo flight between Qingdao and Osaka, Japan, the express cargo can pass through the customs the same day after arriving in Osaka, and the delivery can be completed the next day.
In consideration of the epidemic prevention requirements in the cabin area, the cabin service department, the air protection detachment and the freight department of shanhang airlines randomly participated in the guarantee. According to the security needs, the three cities have jointly carried out training and practical exercises to ensure the safe loading and operation of passenger and cargo flights. The freight department organizes the training of cabin handling and netting skills to the cabin staff and the air support team. The cabin department organizes the training of cabin fire fighting, emergency hatch opening and other air operation procedures to the colleagues of the freight department.
The route schedule of "passengers to goods" is fixed
Since the outbreak of the epidemic, a large number of passenger flights in various countries have been cut, and the civil aviation industry has actively explored the mode of "passenger to cargo" flight transport. A set of data was released at the press conference of civil aviation administration of China: from April 20 to 26, China maintained regular cargo flights with 93 overseas destinations in 45 countries, and planned to carry out 1989 cargo flights every week, an increase of 96.2% over the pre-epidemic period. Among them, all cargo flights 1050, passenger cargo 939. In addition to regular flights, we approved 1873 overtime charter flights of Chinese and foreign airlines to replace passengers with goods. Shanhang has responded positively, and so far 3 planes have been refitted. After refitted, shanhang's maximum carrying capacity of "passenger to cargo" planes will reach 20 tons.
The examination and approval of the "passenger to cargo" route of shandong airlines was carried out simultaneously and in parallel with the aircraft refit. Different from other airlines, the "passenger to cargo" flights are temporary emergency flights. The three "passenger to cargo" routes of shandong airlines from Qingdao to Osaka, Japan, kunming to Delhi and jinan to Osaka, Japan have been approved and scheduled flights have been arranged. The practice of "customer to cargo" regular flight service was introduced by shandong airlines, which gave the import and export enterprises and cargo owners a "comfort", so as to facilitate customers to make a stable plan for receiving and delivering goods.
At present, shanhang airlines operates two flights a week from Qingdao to Osaka, Japan, and is expected to operate one flight every day from mid-may, jinan to Osaka, Japan on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and kunming to Delhi on Mondays, wednesdays, fridays and fridays. The first flight will take place on April 29, May 14 and May 1, respectively.
Subsequently, shandong airlines plans to launch regular flights from Qingdao to Seoul and yantai to Seoul. Each enterprise unit or individual can call the national unified customer service number of shanhang 95369 to communicate and negotiate the cargo charter business.
