Hainan Airlines is scheduled to launch non-stop service between London Heathrow Airport and Changsha Huanghua International Airport on March 23, 2018.
Following the roll-out of the Manchester-Beijing service, this will be Hainan Airlines’ second direct flight between the United Kingdom and China.
Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, is the political, economic, cultural and technological hub of the province, and one of China’s famous historical cities.
The London-Changsha route will be serviced by a Boeing 787 wide-body aircraft.
Hainan Airlines is the fourth-largest airline in terms of fleet size in the People’s Republic of China, and fourth-largest airline in Asia in terms of passengers carried. It operates scheduled domestic and international services on 500 routes from Hainan and nine locations on the mainland, as well as charter services.
