HNA affiliate carrier Suparna Airlines is launching twice-weekly service between Oslo Airport (OSL) and Nanjing (NKG) using a 747-400F, OSL’s state-owned operator Avinor announced today. The freighter route will serve growing seafood exports from OSL.
The 747-400F will depart OSL on Thursday and Sunday afternoons local time, arriving at NKG at 9 a.m. local time the following day.
NKG is located about 300 kilometers west of Shanghai, making the city a convenient gateway for growing import demand for seafood. In a statement on the new service, Avinor’s Director Cargo, Martin Langaas, said, “we expect seafood up to about 250 million NOK [about US$27.8 million] in export value annually on this route.”
