Sichuan Airlines has unveiled plans to launch the first ever direct flight between Chengdu and Moscow.

Commencing on 2 May 2015, the airline will operate three weekly flights to the Russian capital.

Services will depart Chengdu’s Shuangliu International Airport  every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 1500, arriving at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport at 2325. The return flights will then leave the Russian capital at 0120 the next morning, getting back into Chengdu at 1000.

Sichuan Airlines will deploy an Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the new route, offerings 36 seats in business class and 265 in economy.

This marks the latest new direct connection between Chengdu and Europe, following the recent launch of BA‘s services from London, KLM‘s flights from Amsterdam and Air China‘s service to Frankfurt.
