The flight, which is a B757-200 aircraft, was operated by Shenzhen's SF Airlines, the aviation branch of China's express giant SF Express. It departed from Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang province, for Beijing with a consignment of fresh local waxberries.
Currently, the airport has 24 cargo aircraft stands, and it can handle two million tonnes of goods a year.
The Beijing Daxing International Airport opened to flights in September 2019. Located 46 kilometres south of downtown Beijing, the new aviation hub is shaped like a phoenix spreading out its wings. By 2025, its passenger and cargo throughputs are expected to reach 72 million and two million tonnes, respectively, with 620,000 takeoffs and landings.
