BLue Water to Start Denmark-China Air bridge with SAS
There is a heavy demand for air freight to and from China. However, due to the Corona situation, almost all ordinary air traffic have come to a standstill, complicating the transport for Danish companies – for both import and export. Consequently, the present air freight capacity is not able to fulfil the demand from the trade and industry.
Blue Water has therefore in the exceptional circumstances made an agreement with SAS Cargo for a regular scheduled service with two weekly departures between Copenhagen and Shanghai. First departure will be on 6 May. For the present, eight departures are planned.
“It is a difficult situation for many of our customers, as transporting their goods either to or from China is very complicated. And this goes for both import of vital supplies to the health systems and import of goods to our regular commercial customers. But also on the export side, we see an increasing demand. Therefore, we have decided to invest in this temporary scheduled service”, says Palle Kamstrup, Global Director for Blue Water’s Sea & Air Divisions.
