Hefei Xinqiao Airport has set up in the terminal a special counter for express delivery, by which passengers can "mail" goods to their destination through designated flight.
According to an airport staff member, passengers now can deliver at the counter their belongings such as valuables, fresh aqua- and agro-products and other things they need urgently, but not allowed to be carried as luggage, through designated flight. As the airline freight space is guaranteed, the service has met the need of passengers for timely delivery.
It is learned that since the counter was set up, 60% of the express mails it has delivered were documents, tenders, ID cards and the like. In addition to the fast speed, live animals are taken good care of during the delivery. On the waybill to captain, all the items are clearly written, such as pieces, description of the animal and care requirement during the delivery, including air pressure, oxygen content and temperature control.
