Chengdu-based Sichuan Airlines will resume its direct scheduled flights to Moscow next month.
Commencing on 30 April 2016, the Chinese airline will operate three weekly flights to the Russian capital.
Services depart Chengdu’s Shuangliu International Airport every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 1500 and arrive at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport at 1825. The return flights will then leave Moscow at 2020 and get back to Chengdu at 1000 the next day.
Sichuan Airlines will deploy its Airbus A330 aircraft on the new route, configured with 36 seats in first class and 265 in economy.
The airline launched the first ever direct flights between Chengdu and Moscow in May 2015, but suspended the service in October for the winter season.
