New flight scheduled between Shanghai and Tel Aviv E-mail

Israel’s Tourism Ministry and China’s Hainan Airlines announced in June the signing of a marketing agreement to open a new route between Shanghai and Tel Aviv.

This step makes Hainan Airlines the first airline to operate regular flights between Shanghai and Israel. In the past year there has been a significant increase in the number of tourists and business people visiting Israel from China, noted the Tourism Ministry. The new route is expected to increase these numbers further.

As part of the agreement, Hainan Airlines will operate three direct weekly flights from Shanghai Pudong International Airport, starting from 12 September, using their new Dreamliner planes (787-900).

Hainan Airlines has also decided to add another flight to the current four weekly flights on the Tel Aviv-Beijing route due to increased demand, beginning in September.

According to statistics provided by the Tourism Ministry, the entry of Hainan Airlines into the Israeli market in April 2016 changed the face of incoming tourism from China, leading to a significant drop in airfares.
