A Boeing 777 aircraft carrying mangos and blueberries landed at Shanghai Pudong International Airport at 3:40 p.m. Wednesday, the first direct-cargo flight between China and Peru.

Operated by China Eastern Airlines, the aircraft flew over 18,000 km from the airport in Lima.

An airline official said the air cargo route was launched to meet the increase in trade between China and Peru.

Cargo between Asia and South America is normally transported via the United States.

According to China Eastern Air Logistics, a subsidiary of China Eastern Airlines, the number of direct cargo flights carrying South American agricultural products has rocketed from two in 2013 to 70 this year. Total cargo volume increased from 220 to 6,500 tonnes.
