Hainan Airlines opened a new direct air route on Thursday morning (February 28) between Haikou, capital of south China’s Hainan Province, and Osaka, Japan’s second-largest city.
It is this year’s first international air flight from Haikou launched by Hainan Airlines, which has so far opened a number of international routes linking Haikou with cities including Rome, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne.
Hainan will use a Boeing 737-800 aircraft and operate three flights per week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The inaugural flight took off at 8:40 a.m. BJT before arriving in Osaka at 1:40 p.m. JPT. It is scheduled to return to Haikou at 7:15 p.m. BJT after departing from Osaka at 2:40 p.m. JPT on the same day.
