CBI member Gatwick Airport is launching the U.K.’s first ever direct flights to Chongqing – one of the world’s largest urban centres and a major manufacturing and transportation hub in southwest China.
The twice-weekly, year-round flights will then continue to Tianjin, China’s fourth largest city. Starting from 25 June, Chinese carrier Tianjin Airlines will fly the Airbus A330 on the new Gatwick-Chongqing-Tianjin route, the airline’s first long-haul flights outside Asia and one that complements its existing network serving over 100 cities across China.
Both cities are currently not flown to from the U.K. Please read more here.
