Sichuan Airlines decided to arrange the twice-weekly round-trip flights via Airbus A330 aircraft between Prague and Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province, as the regular route on August 12th.
In the past, passengers from Prague need to fly to Beijing or Amsterdam first, and then head to Chengdu. Now, they can fly directly to Chengdu, and the flight only takes about 9 hours. The new direct route saves at least 3 hours comparing with previous one.
From today, this flight route is regularly available on every Tuesday and Friday. The new flight route will dramatically increase the passenger throughput of Chengdu airport.
