Hainan Airlines recently launched flights between Changsha, China and Sydney, Australia. They already serve Australia’s largest city with flights to Xi’an.
The new flights will be operated two times a week using their 250-seat Airbus A330-200s.
There are currently no other flights between the city pair.
“We’re thrilled to welcome another service from Hainan Airlines to Sydney Airport, the world’s leading long-haul airport for Chinese airlines. This new route will significantly boost tourism and trade to Sydney and NSW, bringing an additional 16,600 Chinese visitors and an anticipated $62 million in additional visitor expenditure per year. We’re looking forward to welcoming these new Chinese visitors to Sydney.” Hou Wei, VP Marketing at Hainan Airlines, said: “We are very happy to connect Changsha and Sydney together for the first time. Hainan Airlines has identified Australia as a strategic choice in advancing our growth and development as a global aviation player, and Sydney is Australia’s largest city, economic and tourism hub. We hope that Hainan Airlines will become the choice of an increasing number of travellers around the world, so we are able to contribute more to the promotion of economic and cultural exchanges between China and Australia.”
