There will be three flights every week on the new Chengdu-Dalian-Osaka flight route. Flight CA151, using an A319 aircraft, takes off from Chengdu, stops at Dalian and then arrives at Osaka’s Kansai Airport. And reverse.
Previously, the only air route from Chengdu to Japan landed in Tokyo, with a stopover in Beijing, That route was also operated by Southwest Air China.
Jun Li, an analyst covering the transportation industry for Shanghai-based Everbright Securities said, ‘As the industrial center shifts from coastal cities to the central and western regions, there will be more and more routes to Japan, South Korea, Europe and even North America connected to these regions to meet business or tourism requirements.’
Jun Li added the aviation industry in Yunnan and Guizhou province, both located in southwestern China, will to some extent benefit from developing tourism.
