Good News: Uni-Top Airlines’ Shipping Class 9 Dangerous Goods in Kunming Airport Approved

On May 21, a Uni-Top A300 freighter carrying laptops inclusive of lithium battery PI967 and other electronic products took off from Kunming Chang Shui International Airport, heading for Delhi, the capital territory of India and its 2nd largest city where the information technology is one of the key industries. This is the first time that Uni-Top Airlines has transported class 9 dangerous goods from the Airport that, being simultaneously approved, since then has been qualified to accept and mail class 9 dangerous goods.

On Jan. 18 this year, Uni-Top Airlines initiated a hub operation in Kunming Airport and then with the Airport’s Logistics Company, jointly applied for the qualifications of transporting dangerous goods by air. After several months of perseverance, it has now turned out to be a great success, naturally based on their careful preparation and submission of all necessary documents concerning operational management, emergency response plans, personnel training plus training records, incident report procedures, etc. Eventually, both sides entitling to the transport of class 9 dangerous goods were officially approved by CAAC authorities. This is undoubtedly a significant breakthrough on the business expansion and further collaboration of both companies. The Authorized Staff Are Verifying All the Invoices and Documents
