SHANGHAI, June 5 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai Pudong International Airport saw a total of 9,431 outbound flights during April and May, three times that of the same period last year, local authorities said Friday.
Outbound flights transporting anti-epidemic supplies account for a considerable proportion of the total, showing that the airport has become an important bridge in supporting the global fight against COVID-19, according to Shanghai Customs.
The airport customs department has organized four new warehouses, covering nearly 30,000 square meters, for the storage of anti-epidemic materials and opened green channels for the export of these materials. ■
