China’s Xinjiang province to connect with Europe, Southeast Asia with more flights

 Thursday, June 6, 2019 


Before the tourist season, Chinese airlines opened more international routes between Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and Europe as well as other countries and regions.


China Southern Airlines will launch its first route between Xinjiang and the heart of Europe, which starts from South China’s Guangzhou, to Vienna via Urumqi every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with effect from June 18, cutting travel time from Xinjiang to Europe from around 50 hours by train to seven hours by air.


The company also launched a direct flight from Urumqi to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, every Tuesday. China Southern Airlines will offer more flights between Urumqi and Russia.


From Saturday, routes linking Urumqi to St. Petersburg will be resumed, and flights between Urumqi to Moscow will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.


Sichuan Airlines, along with opening the Urumqi-Chongqing-Sydney route, will also optimize the current non-stop flights to Sydney.


Xiamen Airlines, which focuses on island tourism and study tours, will open more routes between Xinjiang and Southeast Asian countries.


The number of tourists to Xinjiang surpassed 150 million last year, going up by more than 40 percent from the previous year.
