The Meest China logistics company, part of the Meest holding, received an Airbus 330 aircraft delivering parcels from Hong Kong under a new program of regular cargo flights on the China-Ukraine route at the Boryspil airport (Kyiv) last week.
The company's management said that the aircraft was leased for operation on this route, the CFTS portal reports.
"We will operate such flights directly from Hong Kong to Boryspil weekly. This will allow us to make deliveries from China to Ukraine in 12 hours and not depend on airlines, which are not delighting anyone with their stability this year," the logistics operator said.
"Regular flights are being cancelled en massse and delivery times are difficult to predict. We decided to act ourselves. We are leasing the entire aircraft for our cargoes. This allows us to operate regular flights once a week and always have a guaranteed seat aboard for our clients' parcels. We hope that Ukrainian customers will appreciate the opportunity to receive their purchases from China in a stable and timely manner," said Mykhailo Lymar, the general director of Meest China.
As reported earlier, the Meest company launched air delivery of parcels from the United States to Ukraine in October. The flights will be operated regularly. They will land at the Lviv airport, from where parcels will be sent to all parts of the country.
