Darwin to China direct flights launched for the first time



Darwinites will be able to fly direct to China for the first time, in what the NT Government is billing as a game-changer for Asian tourism.

Donghai Airlines will launch a direct, non-stop service from Shenzhen in May.飛機查詢

Dubbed the "Silicon Valley" of China, and with more than 14 million people, the city is considered a major financial centre in southern China.

The Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the service would have the potential to pump around $32 million into the economy each year — but only once the route reaches three flights per week at 80 per cent capacity.The services will use a new Boeing 737-800 and will later be upgraded to a B737 MAX 8, Donghai Airlines said.

The flights are expected to operate two times per week, flying Wednesdays and Sundays from Shenzhen to Darwin and return.
NT Airports CEO Ian Kew said the new link between Darwin and China would create more than 35,000 airline seats directly into the market.

"Uniquely, Donghai Airlines will be the only airline from China to serve Australia with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, providing a more cost effective and economically efficient aircraft that will enable very competitive fares to be offered," Mr Kew said.

Airline tickets for the bi-weekly service will go on sale in China this afternoon, but bookings out of Darwin will not be available until the end of April.
