Chinese airlines restart Melbourne flights

Tuesday, 24 Jan, 2023 0

China Eastern Airlines became the first ‘big three’ carrier to resume Melbourne flights.

China Eastern’s subsidiary Shanghai Airlines touched down from Shanghai.

Xiamen Airlines, which has flown continuous service into Melbourne through the pandemic, has increased its frequency from one to three times a week.

China Southern Airlines resumes service from Guangzhou on Wednesday and by the end of March will have ten flights a week.

Other Chinese carriers are also returning, with Sichuan Airlines restarting flights from Chengdu and Beijing Capital Airlines from Qingdao.

By March Melbourne flights will be at almost 50% of pre-pandemic capacity from mainland China.

China travellers are currently required to present proof of a negative Covid-19 test prior to boarding their flight.
