Emirates has launched two new services from Dubai to Yinchuan and Zhengzhou in Midwest China.
The B777-200 service expands Emirates’ routes to five in mainland China, including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
Departing on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the Dubai service departs at 0250 arriving at Yinchuan Hedong International Airport at 1335. The service will then depart from Yinchuan at 1535 and arrive at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport at 1715.
The return flight will depart Zhengzhou at 2115, arriving at Yinchuan at 2300. It will then depart Yinchuan at 0040, arriving in Dubai at 0430 local time the next day.
Commenting on the new route, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said:
“This new route will provide citizens in and near both cities with convenient and fast connections to destinations in the Middle East, Africa and Europe via Dubai. We are confident the new air transport links will also help boost trade and tourism flows to the growing central and western parts of China where these cities are located.”
