Sichuan Airlines to Launch Chengdu-Auckland Route
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.
