Australian salmon farmer Tassal Group has flown its first batch of fresh salmon directly to Xi’an, a city in central China famous for its terracotta army, reports Kaixian TV.

Flight HU7902 arrived in Xi’an on Dec. 2 with consignments of fresh Atlantic salmon produced at Tassal’s farms in Tasmania. Airliner HNA Cold Chain and HNA Cargo fulfilled the delivery.

Last year, Tassal reported a dramatic rise in exports largely driven by demand for salmon from China.
