Sunan Shuofang International Airport in Wuxi city, Jiangsu province has successfully passed the latest review of the East China Regional Bureau of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to upgrade its airspace class from 4D to 4E.

This is the first license upgrade for the airport since its launch in 2004, showing the airport has increased its comprehensive logistics capabilities.

Huang Jian, deputy general manager of the airport, said that the upgrade means that the airport has made strides and is now ready for the taking off and landing of Class E aircrafts.

In the future, Shenzhen Airlines and other companies will introduce large airliners to operate in the airport.

The upgrade also means that the airport will be able to develop more routes to Europe and America.

In this May, the airport opened the first intercontinental freight route, with two flights a week from Wuxi to Hahn, Germany. Since then, the international cargo transportation has seen the burst of growth.

Now with the airspace class elevated, the airport plans to launch cargo route to the United States by using large, long-distance aircrafts. Editor:Dylan
