Direct flight to link Chengdu with Paris
A direct flight linking Chengdu, a city in southwest China's Sichuan Province, with Paris will be launched on Jan. 28 2016.
The planes run by Air China will fly three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, shorten the one way travel time to about 11 hours.
There was no direct flight linking the two cities before and travelers were required to take a connecting flight in other cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. The new route will become Air China's second direct one linking Chengdu with a European city, while the first direct one is the air route linking Chengdu with Frankfurt which launched in 2013.
