Hainan Airlines to fly non-stop Chengdu to New York
Hainan Airlines is set to launch a non-stop service between Chengdu and New York on 26 October 2017.
Following the rollout of the Chengdu-Los Angeles service, the new route will be the carrier’s second direct flight from Chengdu to North America. With the new service, travellers will be able to fly directly from Chengdu to both the East and West coasts of the US via Hainan Airlines.
The route will be serviced by a Boeing B787 Dreamliner. Business Class passengers will be provided with 180-degree lie-flat seating with an in-seat massage feature. Passengers in all classes will have access to premium on-board amenities and a gourmet selection of Western and Oriental meals.
Hainan Airlines will provide travellers choosing the new route with a variety of all-inclusive travel packages as well as, for Business Class passengers, private limo service, assuring each passenger a convenient and pleasurable experience.
Hainan Airlines has now launched 12 direct routes from mainland China to eight destinations in North America, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto.
The new Chengdu-New York and Chongqing-New York services to be launched in October mean Hainan becomes the Chinese carrier operating the most routes between the US and China.
