Direct flights help Chilean produce exported to Chinese tables

With no direct air routes, a Chinese must endure at least a 25 hour journey, making a stopover in America or Canada, to reach Chile.

But now, Chinese consumers can eat fresh cherries of the Latin American country, that may have still been on the tree barely 30 hours ago, thanks to direct flights reserved for the flourishing import and export of goods between the two countries.

A total of 90 chartered flights, all reserved for fruits, will be operating between Zhengzhou, central China’s Henan Province, and Chile, from Nov. 6 and the end of December. The imported fruits, topping 10,000 tonnes, will be distributed from Zhengzhou to other places in China.
