Aeroflot flight SU216 to Chengdu? New destination or cargo flight?

I was tracking flights for fun and found out there's an Aeroflot B77W flying SVO-CTU (Chengdu, China). Is this just a one off cargo flight or is this a new destination for Aeroflot?

Re: Korean Air makes bid for Asiana

The age of popularity contests of flying the A380 is over except for EK maybe. Also the A380 has limited range/payload for cargo in comparison to mega twins (B777, B777X, A350). A350 and 787 is great for upgrading older 77E/A330's.
