Air China has operated a new round flight route between Sydney and Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan province, via Airbus 330-200. This is the first direct flight between Sydney and Chengdu, starting on Nov.12 and running three times a week.
Chengdu is Air China's second-largest hub offering connections to more than 40 destinations within China and international cities such as Frankfurt, Paris and Rome. The new flight, which offers 237 seats on the aircraft, will help Sydney Airport host seven airlines flying to 13 Chinese cities by the end of the month.
With the launch of this new flight route, cooperation between Chengdu and the most dynamic and prosperous city in New South Wales will be strengthened and boosted. The new round route provides precious opportunities to the Chinese and Australian people to deepen mutual understanding, friendship and economic cooperation.
