China Eastern expands international network

2 Jan 2015

Having launched new services to Paris and Nagoya last month, China Eastern will also add Macau, Busan, Da Nang, Fukuoka and Osaka to its network starting from the end of this month.

Kunming-Paris

This route is operated by a 234-seat A330-200, consisting of two classes – 30 business seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, and 204 economy arranged in a 2-4-2 setup. The flight departs Kunming Changshui airport on every Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 0005 and arrives at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) at 0550, leaving again at 1150 and for a 0600 touch down in Kunming.

The carrier also codeshares with Air France on connecting flights from CDG to 16 European routes, including Amsterdam, Birmingham and Berlin. 

Wuhan-Shanghai-Nagoya

A 158-seat B737-800 is deployed on the route, offering eight business and 150 economy seats. The daily service leaves Wuhan Tianhe airport at 1450, to land at Shanghai Pudong airport at 1615, and then takes off for Nagoya Chubu Centrair airport at 1715 and for scheduled touchdown at 2035. The return flight leaves on the following day at 1030, reaching Shanghai at 1145 and taking off again at 1245 before arriving in Wuhan at 1420.   

China Eastern serves two destinations in Japan from Wuhan – daily to Fukuoka, the country’s sixth largest city and a regional transport hub, and four times weekly to Shizuoka, the fifth largest city located between Tokyo and Nagoya.
