Hainan Airlines, China's fourth largest carrier, is set to launch its first flights from Dalian to Singapore via Hefei on August 29,2010.
The new flights will be operated twice a week using Boeing 737 aircraft. Initial outbound flights will depart from Dalian at 15:30 and will leave from Hefei for Singapore at 18:20. The travel time between Hefei and Singapore will be five hours and 20 minutes.
The launch of the new service will allow travelers from the two Chinese cities to fly directly to Singapore, instead of having to transfer flights in Beijing or Shanghai.
