Capital Airlines Inaugural Flight Departs Qingdao For Sydney

November 1, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

The first Capital Airlines service from Qingdao to Sydney, which is set to boost visitation to New South Wales (NSW), Australia’s premier tourism and events State, left Qingdao International Airport today.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said the inaugural flight departs two months after the NSW Government sealed the deal with Capital Airlines.

“With a population of more than nine million people, Qingdao is a hugely important growth market for NSW and this new service is a fantastic win for our tourism industry, which comes just two months after my meeting with Capital Airlines in Beijing,” Mr Marshall said.

“We are delighted this partnership will see Sydney and NSW welcome more Chinese visitors to our beautiful shores, whilst boosting the economy and highlighting our iconic attractions and jam-packed events calendar to our number one inbound visitor market.”

The NSW Government, via its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, will work with Capital Airlines and travel trade partners to develop and promote itineraries that encourage Chinese visitors to spend time in both Sydney and rural and regional NSW.

Chinese travellers are currently worth $3 billion to the State’s overnight visitor economy.

The new service will operate four times weekly on an A330 aircraft.
