Thanks to abundant tourist resources, Yunnan has great competitive strengths in the tourism market. Kunming has also become an important transportation hub, offering more transition services to Southeast Asia, which is a force in pursuing the Belt and Road Initiative. The operation of these two routes has supported Yunnan to build a bridge for the interactive cooperation in Southeast Asia.

In addition, the operation of these two routes also has brought a driving force for growing tourist market of the Philippines. Manila is a major center for commerce, finance as well as tourism in the Philippines, and Cebu has a large share of tourist arrivals in the Philippines. Thus, the operation of these routes can broaden opportunity to increase tourist sources from southwest China, and moreover, achieve shared growth and mutually beneficial cooperation.

Lucky Air, an affiliate of HNA Group (NO. 353 on the Fortune 500 List), is the second largest airline and the first LCC in Yunnan province. At present, Lucky Air has 45 planes, and has operated a total of 99 routes including 13 international and regional routes. And it has launched 29 international and regional routes between 2014 and 2016. In the coming years, Lucky Air will continue to make contributions in pursuing the Belt and Road Initiative.
