By the way sorry beyond the topic but tell me if anyone know why Keniya Airways is keen to start NBO-BKK-PVG Twice weekly and Air Zimbabwe started HRE-SIN-PEK Twice weekly in WInter 2004. Are there so many Africa-Asia trafffic?
As EurostarVA mentioned, China-Africa trade is booming, and KQ
's service to PVG
is well justified considering the fact that many African business men fly to China's industrial cities on a regular basis (some even have to take trains etc beyond existing gateways such as HKG
As for Air Zimbabwe, it is purely political and am sure is fully subsidized by the Chinese... China has no issues dealing with countries that are shunned by Western Countries, in fact, it targets them. Air Zimbabwe also flies to SIN
because that's where Mugabe's wifey shops
