Sichuan Airlines announced that it plans to begin new service between Chengdu, China and Auckland, New Zealand on June 13.

The carrier will operate the route three days a week, using Airbus A330 aircraft.

Flights are scheduled to depart Chengdu at 1:55 a.m. and arrive in Auckland at 6:45 p.m. Flights from Auckland to Chengdu will depart at 8:30 p.m. and arrive at 6:30 a.m. the next morning.

Sichuan Airlines was founded in 1986, and is headquartered in Chengdu. The carrier operates a fleet of over 120 Airbus aircraft, and flies mainly domestic routes, although, in addition to the new service to Auckland, it offers various select long- and short-haul international routes.
