China Eastern Airlines enters three new international markets
China Eastern Airlines has introduced three new international routes to its network during the last few weeks. On 17 December it started flights between Ningbo (NGB) and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (BKK) using A320s. Initially the schedule is a little erratic on the 2,780-kilometre route, before peaking around Chinese New Year with daily flights and then settling down to a thrice-weekly schedule from mid-February onwards. A seasonal, twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) service from Wenzhou (WNZ) to Rome Fiumicino (FCO) began on 24 December using A330s, and will operate until 18 February, after which the service will operate via Shanghai. Finally, on 18 December the airline began four times weekly flights from Wuxi (WUX) to Singapore (SIN). The 3,760-kilometre route will be served by the airline’s A320s.
