A passenger charter flight has been launched between the city of Qinhuangdao, a summer seaside resort in north China’s Hebei Province, and Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.
The first flight from Ulaanbaatar to Qinhuangdao landed in Beidaihe Airport on Friday night, marking the opening of the first direct flight linking the two places, according to the airport.
The air route, operated by Mongolia’s Hunnu Air, will fly every Tuesday and Friday. It will shorten the travel time between the two cities to two hours and 10 minutes.
The flight is expected to boost the tourism and cultural exchanges between the two cities.
