Sichuan Airlines, which is based in the Chinese city of Chengdu, has launched flights to Prague – only its second destination in Europe.

The new direct service to the Czech Republic took off from Chengdu’s Shuangliu International Airport on Friday (12 August 2016). The scheduled flights will now run twice a week using a twin-aisle Airbus A330 aircraft.

On the outbound leg, flight 3U8295 departs Chengdu every Tuesday and Friday at 1245 and arrives in Prague at 1715. The return flight, 3U8296, leaves the Czech capital on the same days at 1915 and arrives back in Chengdu at 1045 the next morning. The flight time is approximately 10 hours.

Prague becomes the airline’s second European destination, following Moscow. But its long-haul expansion is expected to continue in future, with new routes to Los Angeles and Auckland expected to commence in September and December 2016 respectively.
