China Eastern Airlines will fly direct from Beijing to the Indonesian resort island of Bali from December 31 to February 27, the company announced on Sunday.
Shanghai-based China Eastern will have three Beijing-Bali flights a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, departing Beiing at 15:30 local time and arriving at 22:30 local time. The return flight departs at 23:40 local time and lands in Beijing at 06:50 the next morning. An Airbus A330-300 aircraft will be used on the route, said the company.
Bali is a world famous tourist destination. The new route will mean more tourists from north China visit the tropical paradise during the 2014 Chinese New Year holiday period.
