This new route will be Hainan Airlines’ second direct flight between mainland China and Paris. It will be operated by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and the traveling time will be 11h50m.

Besides this, the passengers are free to use portable electronic devices on board. Also, they can enjoy both Asian and European food during the travel.
Chongqing is a center of economy, finance, trade, logistics, technological innovation and shipping of Southwest China and the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. It is expected by 2020 Chongqing will have about 100 international & regional flight routes, and the number of passengers will exceed 50 million, among which 5 million will be international travelers.
As one of the world’s top airlines, Hainan Airlines has actively participated in the plan of Chongqing. Since 2015, it has opened flight routes from Chongqing to Rome, Los Angeles, New York, etc.
