    CMA CGM’s 20,600 TEU-containership, CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupery, was inaugurated today in the Port of le Havre, France.

    The giant boxship is the company’s new flagship and world’s biggest containership flying the French flag. It is also the ship with the longest name in the world.

    The inauguration ceremony was attended by the French Ministry of Economy Bruno Le Maire and French Minister of Transport Elisabeth Borne.

    The colossal ship was delivered to CMA CGM in January this year and entered into service in February 2018 on the French Asia Line 1 (FAL 1 service), the longest sea route in the world which connects Asia to Northern Europe.

    The ship is 400 meter long and 59 meter wide, which means that it is longer than four football fields and bigger than The Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower.

    The ship features a ballast water treatment system, Becker Twisted Fin improving the propeller’s performance, and helping reduce energy consumption, as well as a new-generation engine that reduces oil consumption by around 25% and fuel consumption for a 3% average reduction of CO2 emissions, as explained by CMA CGM.

    CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupery is one of the three 20,600 TEU-containerships ordered en bloc from Hanjin Subic in 2015. One more ship from the series, CMA CGM Louis Bleriot remains to be delivered by the end of the year.

    Turkish Cargo has added Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, and Muscat, the capital of Oman, to its direct cargo flights network.

    Kigali stands out with its substantial potential of importation. The city enjoys its position as a substantial exports point for the destination of Johannesburg, the metropolitan city of the South Africa. “It is planned to combine the flights to Kigali with the Entebbe (Uganda) line, and to launch a substantial exports - imports line across the region,” informs the carrier through a statement.

    The carrier adds, “Muscat, an important imports market for Turkey, Europe, the Far East and America, has been combined with the flights to the South Asia, resulting in a more effective cargo flight line.”

    Both the flights will be operated with an A330-200F freighter. Following launch of these new cargo flights, the number of cargo flight destinations of the Istanbul-based carrier totals to 85.

    The route for the above flights are as followed:

    Istanbul (IST) - Kigali (KGL) – Entebbe (EBB) - Istanbul (IST)

    Istanbul (IST) - Maskat (MCT) - Hanoi (HAN) - Yeni Delhi (DEL) - Istanbul (IST)

    Heathrow Airport is continuing to gain links to China with services to Chongqing, the airport’s 10th direct connection to the country.

    The thrice-weekly service is operated by Tianjin Airlines on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays using an Airbus A330-200 offering 3,744 tonnes of cargo capacity for imports and exports per year.

    Chongqing is the most populous Chinese municipality, and is part of the West Triangle Economic Zone, which includes Chengdu and Xi’an, contributing to nearly 40 per cent of Western China’s GDP.

    Heathrow chief commercial officer, Ross Baker says the airport is pleased to welcome its 10th direct connection to China, saying: “Heathrow is proud of its role as the UK’s Hub airport and biggest gateway for Chinese passengers and cargo going between our two countries.”

    He adds: “But we have much further to go, and now that Parliament has voted unequivocally in favour of Heathrow expansion we will ensure London, and the UK, become the destination of choice for Chinese trade, tourism, and investment.”

    Last year, services to China via Heathrow contributed £510 million to the UK economy, supporting up to 15,000 jobs according to Frontier Economics.

    Cargo volumes to and from China from Heathrow increased more than 10 per cent to 137,000 tonnes, but the airport is still missing out on connections to important Chinese cities.

    This year, Heathrow has gained links to Wuhan, Sanya, Changsha, Xi’an and now Chongqing, but does not have links to Chengdu, Hangzhou, Kunming, Nanjing, Shenyang, Tianjin, Urumqi and Xiamen.

    Turkish Cargo has transported five white rhinos from Johannesburg to Shanghai via Istanbul.

    The five rhinos, each weighing 1 tonne, were accompanied by the specialist teams and keepers on their journey to new home.

    The rhinos were grown under supervision until they reach the age of 3 due to their endangered nature. While the species of white rhinos was once the most common species, they are now endangered due to illegal hunting for their horns.

    The carrier mentions in the press release, “Through this operation performed to Shanghai by Turkish Cargo, it is aimed to enhance the awareness level of the Chinese people on the effect of illegal hunting on natural life balance, and the endangered species of white rhino.”

    Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has seen steady growth in cargo and airmail throughput in the month of July. The hub has handled 433,000 tonnes of cargo in the reporting month. Transshipments recorded an increase of 9 percent year-on-year, driving the growth in cargo throughput. Amongst the key trading regions, traffic to/from North America and Southeast Asia increased most significantly.

    During the month, passenger volume grew to 6.7 million, representing a year-on-year increase of 2.2 percent. The growth in passenger traffic was mainly contributed by Hong Kong resident travel, which saw an 8 percent year-on-year growth over the same month last year. Overall passenger traffic to/from Mainland China, Europe and Japan recorded the most significant increases.

    Over the first seven months of 2018, passenger and cargo and airmail throughput both experienced year-on-year increases of 3.1 percent, reaching 43.6 million and 2.9 million tonnes respectively.

    On a rolling 12-month basis, HKIA handled 74.2 million passengers, 5.1 million tonnes of cargo and airmail, and 425,770 flight movements, representing year-on-year growth of 4.2 percent, 4.7 percent and 2.7 percent respectively.

    Meanwhile, HKIA is expecting the launch of a new airline service that will broaden the airport’s extensive network even further, as part of its efforts to offer more convenience and choices to travellers.

    Michael Yuen, general manager, Airport and Industry Collaboration, Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, “We are delighted to welcome EgyptAir, a new addition to HKIA’s operating airlines, which will offer twice-weekly flights to and from Cairo via Bangkok starting from September 18. The service will be further increased to three times per week from October 28. We hope passengers enjoy the new service to this historic country, and we look forward to welcoming more new airlines adding even more destinations in the future.”
