Sichuan Airlines will launch non-stop flights from Chengdu to Dubai later this year.
Commencing on 14 December 2016, the new service will operate twice a week, departing Sichuan’s provincial capital every Wednesday at 1400 and Saturday at 1540. The return flights will leave Dubai every Thursday at 0005 and every Sunday at 0140.
Sichuan Airlines will deploy its Airbus A330 aircraft on the route, configured with 36 seats in first class and 209 in economy.
The new non-stop flights will complement the Chinese carrier’s existing twice weekly Chengdu-Yinchuan-Dubai service, which runs every Tuesday and Friday.
