China Eastern Airlines has continued to expand its international network from Nanjing, the capital of eastern China’s Jiangsu province.

The Shanghai-based carrier has commenced a new trans-Pacific service between Nanjing and Vancouver. Flights will now operate three times a week, complementing the airline’s existing daily service between Shanghai and Vancouver.

The latest route will operate every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday using an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, and will continue onwards between Nanjing and Kunming.

“We want to thank our long-standing partner, China Eastern, for choosing YVR to introduce this new connection between Vancouver and Nanjing, a renowned Chinese historical epicentre and a key economic hub,” said Craig Richmond, president & CEO of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) “This is another exciting first for YVR, offering passengers the only non-stop access to Nanjing in all of Canada.”

China Eastern also operates long-haul flights from Nanjing to Los Angeles and Sydney.
