Hainan Airlines is scheduled to launch non-stop service between Chengdu and New York on October 26, 2017.
Following the roll-out of the Chengdu-Los Angeles service, this will be the airline’s second direct flight from Chengdu to North America. With the new service, travelers will be able to fly directly from Chengdu to both the East and West coasts of the US via Hainan Airlines.
The route will be serviced by a Boeing B787 Dreamliner.
Hainan Airlines has, to date, launched 12 direct routes from mainland China to eight destinations in North America, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto, etc. The new Chengdu-New York and Chongqing-New York services to be launched in October will give Hainan Airlines the distinction of being the Chinese carrier operating the most routes between the US and China.
