A cargo aircraft smoothly landed on the taxiway of the Sunan Shuofang International Airport in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, on April 16 to prepare for its maiden flight from the city to Mexico City.

The flights between the two cities, operated by Aeroméxico Cargo, are scheduled to run three times per week on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, taking off on 4 am with a one-way flight time of 22 hours and 50 minutes.

The cargo aircraft currently carries auto parts and is expected to handle seafood and fruits in the future.

The launch of the flight between Wuxi and Mexico will greatly improve the timeliness of cargo delivery to Central and Latin America, according to a staff member from the airport.

Mexico, a gateway to South America, is an important transfer hub for freight to the continent. South America, meanwhile, has gradually emerged as a crucial new market for the overseas expansion of Chinese enterprises.

In 2022, Mexico was China's second largest trade partner in Latin America. China's exports to Mexico primarily include LCD panels, plastic products, and motor vehicle parts. Key imports from Mexico, on the other hand, include integrated circuits, medical instruments, and fresh products.

One of the countries with the fastest growing e-commerce industry, Mexico has grown into the second largest e-commerce market in Latin America. The new airline will therefore inject new vitality to the development of e-commerce businesses in Wuxi and even the entire Yangtze River Delta.
