Four aircraft produced by Italian aircraft manufacturer Vulcanair arrived in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, by a China-Europe freight train Friday, local authorities said.

The aircraft were purchased by Sichuan Tuofeng General Aviation Co., LTD, general agency of Vulcanair in China. The company has agreed to buy a total of 100 aircraft from Vulcanair.

The aircraft were transported by trucks to Lodz, one of the largest cities in Poland, from Italy, and carried by a China-Europe freight train departing from Lodz to China on Feb. 13. They finally arrived in Chengdu on Feb. 26 and completed all procedures, including customs clearance, on Friday.

"Compared with traditional sea transportation which usually takes around 45 days, it only spent 14 days on a China-European train," said Che Tianfa, chairman of the board of Tuofeng.

The aircraft will be used for pilot training, sightseeing, photograph and short-distance shipment.
