Clear for takeoff: direct flights from UK to Chengdu

Authors: China Daily


London will soon be connected to Chengdu by air, as Air China will launch direct flights July 3.
Guy Stephenson, chief commercial officer at Gatwick Airport, Britain's second largest airport, said: "Chengdu is a strategically important destination and a major logistical hub, so the new route – the UK's only direct flight - opens up a range of opportunities to access markets throughout central and western China."
It's not the first time that there has a direct flight between the two cities. In 2013, British Airways started direct routes from London to Chengdu but stopped in early 2017.
