Emirates Airline is set to expand its services in mainland China with four weekly flights to Yinchuan (INC) and Zhengzhou (CGO) beginning May 3, 2016.
Chairman and chief executive, Emirates Airline and Group, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said: “With the opening of these new strategic routes, Emirates Airline looks forward to contributing to the enhancement of China’s trade links with the rest of the world, in particular with the UAE and Arab world. We believe the new international air links that we are launching will help create tourism and trade opportunities for Chinese business and leisure travellers that may not otherwise exist.”
He added: “With our established network across Africa, Europe and the Middle East, Emirates Airline is a ready-made connector of people and trade, and we look forward to further developing aviation links with China in a mutually beneficial way.”
The services will be operated by a three class configured Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, offering 266 seats.
