On July 15, 2016, Air China Limited (hereafter referred to as Air China) started the Yinchuan-Chongqing-Nha Trang service. As Air China’s second airline connecting China and Vietnam (after theBeijing–Ho Chi Minh City service), this daily service will serve as a new choice for western China travellers wanting to visit Vietnam.
Previously, to go to Nha Trang, Chinese tourists had to transfer in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. So, naturally, the Yinchuan-Chongqing-Nha Trang service is set to facilitate many Chinese tourists’ travel, especially holiday-goers with families.
In support of the launch of this service, Air China has released a series of special offers. Passengers who have booked, through www.airchina.vn or Air China offices in Ho Chi Minh City, Nah Trang-Chongqing round-trip tickets with a flight date within the period from July 15 to July 21, 2016, are entitled to a special offer of USD 29/299 for Economy/Business Class. (All prices do not include taxes.)
In 2016, Air China is continuing to expand its airline network with Beijing as its hub, and also promoting its intercontinental airlines in major regional cities. The launch of the Yinchuan-Chongqing-Nha Trang service indicates Air China’s further presence in Southeast Asia and its continuous optimization of the airline network in western China. In the first half of this year, Air China opened a series of services, including: Chongqing–Dubai,Shenzhen–Beijing–Los Angeles, Shenzhen–Frankfurt, Wenzhou-Seoul, and Hangzhou-Surat Thani. What’s more, Air China will start its Shanghai–San Jose service in the second half of this year. So far, Air China has 15 destinations in Southeast Asia, such as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, Bangkok and Chiang Mai, with airline networks covering 11 countries.
The flight number of the Yinchuan-Chongqing-Nha Trang service is CA453/4. It is set to be operated by B738 on a daily basis, and take off from Yinchuan at 07:50 local time, arrive in Chongqing at 09:50, and head for Nha Trang at 10:55, where it will arrive at 13:00 local time; in the return leg, the flight will depart from Nha Trang at 14:00 local time, arrive in Chongqing at 18:15 local time, and head for Yinchuan at 19:20, arriving there at 21:10.
