Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines will launch a daily flight from Hangzhou to the Indian city of Kolkata later this month.
Commencing on 28 June, the new service will depart the Chinese city’s Xiaoshan International Airport at 1905, arriving at Kolkata’s Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport at 0210 the next day. The return service will then leave Kolkata at 0300 and arrives back in Hangzhou at 0955.
China Eastern will deploy a single-aisle Airbus A320 aircraft on the route.
The new route will make a stop in Kunming, southwest China, in both directions. This marks an extension of the existing Kunming-Kolkata route which China Eastern first launched in 2007.
