China’s Xiamen Airlines will launch its inaugural flight to North America on Monday (25 July 2016), when it kicks off a new direct service from Xiamen to Vancouver.

The new trans-Pacific route, which will operate three times a week, also marks the first North American connection for the city of Xiamen and southeast China’s Fujian province.

Flights will depart Xiamen’s Gaoqi International Airport every Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 2130 and arrive in Vancouver at 1840. The return flights will then leave the Canadian city on every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 0145, landing back into Xiamen at 0530.

Xiamen Airlines will serve the route using its 237-seat, three-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Four other Chinese carriers – Air China, China Eastern, China Southern and Sichuan Airlines – already fly to Vancouver, and with the addition of Xiamen Airlines, Vancouver International Airport will host more Chinese airlines than any other airport in North America.
