The economic and cultural exchanges between Chengdu and Oceania will become more convenient.
On March 27, Sichuan Airlines signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Auckland International Airport on opening a direct air route between Chengdu and Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, on June 13. This will be the third regular air link between the city and Oceania after Melbourne and Sydney. It will take about 13 hours for passengers from Chengdu to Auckland, which is called the "City of Sails."
Sichuan Airlines will use A330 aircraft to operate the service on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Numbered 3U8909, the outbound flight leaves Chengdu at 01:55 and arrives in Auckland at 18:45 (local time), and the inbound one numbered 3U8910 departs from Auckland at 20:30 (local time) and arrives in Chengdu at 06:00 the next day. The flight schedule will be implemented between June 13 and September 23 (winter time).
During the summer time between September 26 and October 28, the outbound flight leaves Chengdu at 01:55 and arrives in Auckland at 19:45 (local time), and the inbound one departs from Auckland at 21:30 (local time) and arrives in Chengdu at 06:00 the next day.
"The launch of the service will promote the economic, trade and cultural exchanges between the two cities," said Mark Frood, International Market Development Manager of Auckland International Airport, adding that "we really expect that we could increase the frequency of flights and make it a daily service as early as possible."
It is reported that Sichuan Airlines will offer for the first three flights a minimum round-trip air fare of RMB1700 (excluding tax), and a lowest round-trip fare including tax of RMB3500.
