Xiamen Airlines adds Melbourne-Hangzhou in time for Xmas

Chinese carrier Xiamen Airlines will add a new non-stop route to Hangzhou from Melbourne, Australia on 16 December 2017.
There will be two flights per week using a B787-8.

The non-stop service will depart Melbourne on Thursday and Sunday, while the service from Hangzhou will depart on Wednesday and Saturday.

Simon Gandy, chief of aviation Melbourne Airport said: “China is currently the largest inbound tourism market for Victoria, with 570,000 annual visitors. With tourism between China and Melbourne booming, this new non-stop service to Hangzhou will enhance choice for Victorian travellers. 
 
“Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang Province in East China and known for its scenic beauty including the West Lake. The city has a population of 8.9 million and is located just 180 kilometres from Shanghai, making it a great destination to visit in its own right and a gateway into China’s biggest city. 

“For business purposes this is a great route as China’s largest e-commerce company, Alibaba, has its headquarters in Hangzhou."
