HAIKOU, Friday Dec. 3, a chartered plane loaded with cross-border e-commerce goods worth a total of 8.22 million yuan (1.16 million U.S. dollars) departed from Hainan Province for Dallas in the United States, marking the launch of a new all-cargo air route.
According to Haikou Customs, it is Hainan’s first all-cargo air route to the United States. Its maiden flight departed from the Meilan international airport in Haikou.
In June 2020, China released a master plan to build Hainan into a globally influential and high-level free trade port by the middle of the century.
