At 11:00 a.m. on July 12, the first flight ceremony of Changde-Xishuangbanna direct flight route was held in Changde Taohuayuan Airport. Vice Mayor Yang Chengying announced the official opening of Changde-Xishuangbanna direct flight route. On the same day, 50 passengers from Changde took the first flight to Xishuangbanna.

Xishuangbanna in Yunnan Province is famous for its magical natural landscape of tropical rainforest and minority customs. The flight is operated by Spring Airlines every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The departure time from Changde Taohuayuan Airport is 12:00, arriving in Xishuangbanna Gashan International Airport at 14:20; the departure time from Xishuangbanna is 15:05, arriving in Changde at 17:10. The officially announced fare starts from 749 yuan, excluding fuel surcharge and airport construction tax, and the specific fare is subject to the airline’s official website.

It is reported that the opening of the route has narrowed the distance between Changde and Xishuangbanna, bringing more convenience for tourists from both places to realize “fast trip but slow travel” and creating more opportunities for the urban economic development. At the inaugural ceremony, the city grandly promoted the tourism resources and advantages of “Changde, the City in the Peach Blossom” as well as the promotion incentives of tens of millions of yuan and generous policy “gift packages” prepared by Changde, to welcome tourists from all over the country.

It is learnt that Xishuangbanna is the second city in Yunnan Province to have a direct flight to Changde, after Kunming.

The opening of the route is an important initiative to help the recovery of the domestic cultural tourism market, not only to achieve direct flights to Xishuangbanna for Changde passengers, but also to provide a new choice for them in the summer vacation.
