China Eastern launches services from Wuhan to Singapore

China Eastern’s first route from Wuhan to a destination outside Greater China is to Singapore. Cutting the ribbon for the new route were China Eastern’s Wuhan Party Secretary Yang Xu; China Eastern’s Commercial Marketing Director Wu Longxue; Hubei Airports Group General Manager Han Zhiliang; Hubei Aviation Security Supervision Bureau Chief Liu Weimin; Wuhan City Deputy Mayor Liu Liyong; China Eastern Deputy General Manager & China Eastern Wuhan Chairman Wu Yongliang; Deputy Secretary of Wuhan City Jiang Tiebin; and China Eastern Wuhan General Manager Jiang Feifei.

  • On 19 April, China Eastern launched a thrice-weekly service to Singapore (SIN) from Wuhan (WUH) in the central Chinese province of Hubei. The route will be operated with A320s and faces competition from SilkAir’s also thrice-weekly flights. While Singapore is the first destination outside Greater China offered by China Eastern from Wuhan, the airline already serves a total of 20 destinations in Mainland China from the airport, as well as Taipei in Taiwan. Wuhan, China’s 14th largest airport by passenger volume grew its traffic by 7% last year and together with Air France became the winner of last week’s anna.aero Route of the Week prize.
