Sichuan Airlines is to become the latest Chinese airline to operate direct flights to Sydney when twice weekly services to Australia’s largest city commence on December 20.
“Sichuan Airlines will operate twice weekly flights with its Airbus A330-200 aircraft, providing more than 50,000 seats per year on the important Chongqing-Sydney route,” Sydney Airport CEO Kerrie Mather said.
“Chongqing is a major manufacturing centre, transportation hub and one of China’s emerging megacities. With around 30 million residents, the city has a greater population than Australia.”
The flights to Sydney will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays.
