BEIJING – A total of 57.7 tons of Boston lobsters from Canada has arrived at Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport in East China’s Zhejiang province on a charter flight Thursday, the General Administration of Customs (GAC) said Saturday.

This is the first lobster import cargo charter flight at the airport, one of the designated ports for imports of edible aquatic animals, since the COVID-19 outbreak this year, the GAC said.

The local airport customs ensured efficient customs clearance so that the edible aquatic products can arrive at people’s dining tables safely and quickly, the GAC said.

The imports of aquatic animal food products at Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport have been recovering as people’s lives are returning to normal, the GAC said.

Hangzhou is well-linked with other popular destinations in China, such as Shanghai, which can be reached by high-speed trains in about one hour.
