Jeju will become the Chengdu-based airline’s second South Korean destination, following Seoul. Flights to the island will commence on 16 May and will be operated three times a week (every Monday, Thursday and Saturday) direct from Chengdu’s Shuangliu International Airport.
Then on May 21, Sichuan Airlines will launch four weekly flights (every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) to the Thai resort province of Krabi. This route will operate from Chongqing, complementing the airline’s existing Chengdu-Krabi service.
Sichuan Airlines will operate both new routes using a single-aisle Airbus A321 aircraft.
