An all-cargo aircraft on January 10 took off from Diwopu International Airport in Urumqi bound for Aktobe in Kazakhstan, QazMonitor reports citing Xinhua.

This marked the official opening of the cross-border e-commerce all-cargo air route, linking Urumqi with Kazakhstan.

The total batch of goods amounted to 15 tonnes, valued at over 24.74 million yuan (about $3.65 million), mainly including daily necessities such as clothes, shoes, and bags.

The carrier of the air route, an energy development company in northwest China's Gansu Province, will operate two special flights before the Spring Festival which falls on Jan. 22 this year.
