Dubai World Central (DWC) has welcomed the inaugural flight by Uni-top Airlines, providing services to Kunming in Yunnan province.
The Chinese airline will operate three flights a week between DWC and Kunming, the capital of Yunnan in southwest China.
DWC is the world’s 22nd busiest cargo hub by international freight volumes, and is home to 21 cargo operators flying to 46 destinations.
Uni-top Airlines was established in 2008, making it the first Chinese private airline to independently operate long-haul cargo aircraft.
It started operations in 2009 with three Boeing 747-200Fs out of Wuhan Tianhe Airport, and Uni-top now also has one Boeing 747-400F and seven Airbus A300-600Fs.
