Kenyan firm expects more Chinese airlines in Africa to boost

A Kenyan cargo firm has called for more Chinese airlines to fly to Africa in order to expand Sino-Africa trade.

一家肯尼亚货运公司呼吁更多的中国航线来非洲,以扩大中非贸易。

Kenya's Astral Aviation CEO Sanjeev Gadhia told Xinhua in Nairobi that currently only two Chinese airlines fly to Africa.

肯尼亚星际航空总裁 Sanjeev Gadhia 告诉内罗毕的新华社,目前只有两家中国航空公司的航线是飞往非洲的。

He urged more Chinese airlines to consider flying directly to Africa due to the huge demand for travel that is fueled by growing Sino-Africa trade.

由于巨大的旅游需求,他敦促更多的中国航空公司开通直接飞往非洲的航线,这能推动中非贸易增长。

In 2015, Astral signed an agreement with China Southern Airlines. Under the agreement, Astral will transport Chinese goods that arrive in Nairobi from China Southern Airlines to the rest of East and Central African states.

2015年,星际航空与中国南方航空公司签署协议。根据协议,星际将从中国南方航空公司运送中国的货物到达内罗毕,再转运到中东和非洲中部国家。

"Our role is to provide last mile logistics to Chinese goods headed to the hinterland countries such as Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan," he said.

“我们的作用是,为中国的货物前往内陆国家提供最后一英里的物流,如卢旺达,布隆迪和南苏丹。“他说。

Astral has also signed an agreement with the Chinese Customs whereby Astral airlines will be allowed to consolidate Kenyan bound cargo in Guangzhou.

星际还与中国海关签署了一项协议,星际航空将被允许在广州一起运送肯尼亚的货物。

Gadhia said his company is eager to sign more deals with Chinese airlines so as to ease the movement of goods between China and Africa.

格提亚说他的公司急于与中国的航空公司签订更多的协议以缓解中国和非洲之间的货物运输困难。

He said better air links between China and Africa will improve the bilateral trade.

他说,中国和非洲之间有更好的航空联系可以改善双边贸易。

He also noted that due to the great distance between the two regions trade can be complicated.

他还指出,由于两地之间的遥远距离使贸易变得复杂。

On average a container takes 45 days to travel by sea from China to the Port of Mombasa, Kenya.

一个集装箱从中国到肯尼亚蒙巴萨的港口平均需要45天的时间。

However, if the goods are destined for Rwanda, it would take another two weeks to be cleared at the port and reach Rwanda.

但是,如果这些货物的终点是卢旺达,那将需要另外2个星期的时间在港口进行清理再运往卢旺达。

According to Astral, the same container will move from China to Rwanda in four days if it is transported by air.

根据星际航空的计算,同样的集装箱如果采取空运将在四天内从中国运到卢旺达。

Gadhia said closer cooperation in the aviation sector will therefore bring more benefits to both regions.

格提亚说航空业更加紧密的合作将给地区带来更多的利益。

"It will result in lower cost of trade as well as reduce transportation time," he said.

“这将降低贸易成本,减少运输时间。”他说
