On the first anniversary of its official opening, Beijing Daxing airport is welcoming today, 25 September 2020, an unusual aircraft flying for China Eastern Airlines (CEA), member of Skyteam Cargo through China Cargo Airlines.
The special-themed B777-300 was jointly launched by CEA and the organisers of the China International Import Expo (CIIE) on 2 July and made its maiden flight to Paris one day later, marking the beginning of its global tour.
Serving as the image ambassador of the CIIE, CEA's flagship aircraft visited ten countries, including France, Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, the USA, South Korea, Japan, Australia and Sri Lanka, with a total range exceeding 100,000 km. The third edition of this platform for international cooperation is going to be held in Shanghai from 5 to 10 November. (ah)
