Vancouver Welcomes North America's First Flight to the Interior of China

Vancouver International Airport is happy to welcome Sichuan Airlines, which will offer direct flights to the interior of China, the very first such flights in North America.  The flights will begin on June 22 and will operate three days per week from Vancouver and Chengdu via Shenyang.  Larry Berg, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority, said that this gives Vancouver Airport not only a new destination, but a new airline, and they are happy that Sichuan Airlines has chosen Vancouver as its first point of entry into North America.

Chengdu and Shenyang are both very important commercial and economic hubs.  Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan and home to 14 million people and the Giant Panda.  Shenyang, capital of Liaoning Province, is one of the largest cities in China, with a population of 8.1 million.  Zhang Huiyu, Vice President of Sichuan Airlines, said that starting the operation of this route will help expand the reach of Vancouver International Airport into China's domestic network.
