Hainan Airlines to Launch its First Nonstop Routes to Los Angeles

Hainan Airlines will launch new direct services from Los Angeles to Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, from March 16, and to Chongqing from March 22, offering business travellers convenient connection between China and the US.

Both new routes will operate twice weekly, with Chengdu-LA flights departing Chengdu at 21:10 on Sundays and Wednesdays, to arrive in LA at 20:00, while Chongqing-LA flights will depart Chongqing at 21:25 on Tuesdays and Saturdays to arrive in LA at 20:00.

These new routes complement Hainan‘s existing service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Changsha launched in early 2016, and will give Hainan a total of three routes between Los Angeles and mainland China. LAX flights offer nighttime departures with morning arrivals in China, allowing for a full day of activities.

“Hainan Airlines is proud to bring our award-winning service and elite experience to two new Chinese destinations that fit well with LAX’s position as a major gateway to Asia,” says Wei Hou, vice president of Hainan Airlines. “The North American market is continuing to grow, and Hainan is making a long-term commitment to the region, making it easier for our customers in China and the U.S to enjoy Hainan’s premier quality.”
