Air China to open the Shanghai-Chengdu-Mumbai route on May 2

Air China (Beijing), as part of its effort to build its hub in China’s southwestern city of Chengdu, will open a Shanghai-Chengdu-Mumbai route on May 2, 2012.

With the introduction of the new service, Mumbai will be the 10th city accessible by Air China’s flights from Chengdu; the other cities include Tokyo, Nagoya, Seoul, Singapore, Bangalore, Kathmandu, Karachi, Taipei China and Hong Kong China. The four weekly flights, CA 429/430, will be offered with A319 by Air China’s southwestern offshoot.

Mumbai is the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra. Known as India’s “west gateway”, it is the country’s largest port and important hub of transportation. As an economic center and industrial base, Mumbai boasts Asia’s longest “Gold Market Street”. It’s the birthplace of India’s textile industry and one of the world’s most important textile products exporters.
