China Eastern Airlines is expanding its operations in Northeast Asia, with the launch of new flights to Japan and Korea.
This month, the airline will introduce a new direct route from Beijing to Osaka, and two brand new services to Seoul.
The new Beijing-Osaka Kansai route was previously operated with a stop in the Chinese port city of Qingdao. But flights will now operate direct, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, using an Airbus A320 jet.
And China Eastern has also added capacity to Seoul’s Incheon International Airport, with the launch of scheduled flights from two cities in eastern China’s Jiangsu province – Changzhou and Wuxi.
The Changzhou-Seoul route commenced on 20 November and will now run twice a week (Tuesdays and Sundays) using an A320 aircraft. And from 28 November, the Wuxi-Seoul route will be operated every Monday and Friday using either an A320 or larger A321 jet.
