Turkish Airlines is connecting Xi’an, China to its flight network as its fourth destination in mainland China after Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou on the 20th year of its presence in the country.
The announcement was made after a meeting between Turkish Airlines chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, M. İlker Aycıand and secretary of the Shaanxi Province Party Committee, Hu Heping.
Xi’an flights will initially be three frequencies a week as the flights are being planned to start at the end of 2019 while they are set to increase gradually as the 2020 summer schedule begins. With the launch of Xi’an flights, Turkish Airlines’ reciprocal flights to China will increase to 24 flights a week
M. İlker Aycı said: “We expect that the Xi’an flights will contribute to the tourism, trade, culture and economy connections between the two countries. I believe that the transportation bridge built by us will facilitate positive developments beneficial to both communities that have relations deeply rooted in history.” – TradeArabia News Service
