Air Route From Central China's City to Bangok in Operation
ZHENGZHOU, July 9 -- A regular air route from
this capital of central China's Henan Province to
Bangkok, capital of Thailand, is now in operation.
This is the first route directly connecting the
province with a foreign city, sources said.
Boeing 737s operate on the route, which takes 3.5
hours to cover.
Planes are scheduled to take off at 9:00 p.m. each
Friday from Zhengzhou and return at 7:00 a.m. each
Saturday from Bangkok.
Visitors from Thailand and other Southeast Asian
countries comprise the majority of tourists visiting
Henan, and those countries are also favorites with
tourists from Henan.
Previously, passengers both ways had to fly via Hong
Kong, Macao or Guangzhou.
