The highly efficient engine provides a fuel consumption reduction of 25%, emissions reduction of 25%, as well as a significant maintenance cost reduction.
Our company has made plans to use the PR aviation for carrying goods to MNL and also from MNL to JFK-YYZ. The reason is that it comes at a relatively cheaper price. As the requirements of many customers do not include time constraint and have small volume requirements, this can prove to be a better option.
As an air freight carrier, FreightBest has come up with a schedule of 2 cargo flights from Hong Kong on every Sundays and Thursdays, mainly for carrying clothing goods. Freight Best has been concentrating on the air freight from China to USA. A great focus has been laid down by our company on the take-off of the air freight usa and freight shipping from Hong Kong to the LAX-ORD-JFK-MIA for a long term. The mainstay of the airline company is the OZ, CV and RU. The fixed quantity that shipping to U.S is between 200 to 300T per month.
This is expected to benefit the air freight from China to USA and the air freight Malaysia. The deal is also expected to prove beneficial to the overall air freight shipping. It is believed that the introduction of Airbuses in the line of aircrafts of the country has better scope for progress in the future. It will not only help to strengthen the country's economy, but also open excellent trade options.
