transfers via Urumqi and arrives in Chengdu at 11:30pm. This route is part of
the government’s Xinjiang support program and connects Xinjiang with central
regions of China, building a bridge for the economic and cultural development
of Xinjiang.

With visits to the coasts and seaside resorts of China becoming more and
more popular, Air China has launched its Chongqing-Qingdao route. Flights are
available on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and depart from Chongqing at

opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful parts of this country,” said

Zhou Enyong, General Manager of Air China’s marketing department. “Over the
