A large number of travelers to China for the Spring Festival this year is predicted to take on new shapes and forms. China Eastern is working harder to restart and create new international lines.
The Beijing Daxing – Kuala Lumpur route and the Shanghai Pudong – Cairns, Australia route were recently started and resumed respectively. Additionally, it will expand the number of flights between Pudong and Sydney, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Male in addition to adding 15 new foreign routes, one of which will be Pudong-Perth.
CEA intends to run 2,322 round-trip flights between domestic airports and Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok during the 40 days of the Spring Festival travel boom. There are four round-trip flights per week on the recently launched MU795/796 route between Beijing Daxing and Kuala Lumpur.
presently, the CEA runs four routes to reach Kuala Lumpur: Shanghai Pudong to Sabah, Hangzhou to Kuala Lumpur, Beijing Daxing to Kuala Lumpur, and Shanghai Pudong to Kuala Lumpur. During this year’s Spring Festival travel rush, 340 round-trip flights have been scheduled for these routes. New direct flights to Kuala Lumpur from Kunming, Xi’an, Chengdu, and other locations will also be made available by CEA.
Flying to Shanghai Pudong, Beijing Daxing, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Kunming, and other cities, CEA offers eight trips from Singapore. The airline firm operates direct flights from Thailand to Xi’an, Guangzhou, Guangzhou, Chengdu, and Shanghai, among five other destinations. This year, there will be an increase in flights to 66 daily during the Spring Festival travel boom.
Due to its mild climate, Australia has become a popular winter destination in addition to Southeast Asia. The ninth route that CEA operates between China and Australia is the recently restored direct flight route from Shanghai Pudong to Cairns, Australia. Flights on this seasonal route are available every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from February 1 through February 18.
