Ethiopian Airlines will launch a cargo route from Oslo to Guangzhou in China, boosting Norway’s capacity for seafood exports to East Asia, the company and Norwegian airport operator Avinor said on Thursday.

Starting in Africa, an Ethiopian Boeing 777-200F cargo plane will pick up containers of chilled salmon and other seafood in Oslo before travelling via Belgium and on to southern China, an Avinor spokesman said.
