Hainan Airlines said it will be launching a Beijing-Manchester route in June of 2016, the first nonstop service between the two cities.
HNA Group chairman Chen Feng said, “As a company born in China and now actively expanding into international markets, Hainan Airlines is doing its bit to assure the success of the ´One Belt, One Road´ initiative and has progressively been adding nonstop flights connecting China with Europe over the last few years. I believe that the Beijing-Manchester route that will be launched will serve to create a new air bridge.”
The Beijing-Manchester route will be Hainan Airlines´ sixth international route following the launch of the Chongqing-Rome, Beijing-San Jose, Shanghai-Boston, Shanghai-Seattle and Beijing-Prague routes earlier this year.
Hainan Airlines Co., Ltd., founded in January 1993, is committed to providing passengers with comprehensive and seamless air travel services as one of the world´s seven SKYTRAX five-star airlines and one of the world´s top 10 safest airlines.
