China Eastern Airlines will launch two new routes to Jeju, a leisure and MICE destination in South Korea, from Hangzhou and Ningbo. Both services will be operated twice a week by Airbus A320 aircraft.
The Hangzhou-Jeju route will kick off on April 9, operating every Monday and Friday and departing the Chinese city at 1830 to arrive in Jeju at 2105. The return leg departs on the same day at 2205, touching down at 2240.
Then, on April 13, the carrier will begin the service between Ningbo and Jeju on same days of the week. The flight will depart at 1415, reaching Jeju at 1635, and the return leg will depart one hour later to fly back to Ningbo, arriving at 1745.
These new routes come closely behind Dragonair’s announcement to fly between Hong Kong and Jeju (see story here), reflecting the destination’s growing appeal, particularly for Chinese travellers.
