Xiamen Airlines Launches Flights to Amsterdam

Xiamen Airlines has launched its very first intercontinental route with flights between Xiamen and Amsterdam.

 Xiamen Airlines will operate the new route, flight numbers MF811 and MF812, with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring 4 seats in first class, 18 in business and 214 in economy.

 The flight departs Xiamen at 23:50 every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, and arrives at Amsterdam's Schiphol at 05:45 the next day. The flight duration is 11 hours and 55 minutes.

The return journey departs Amsterdam at 12:35 every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and arrives in Xiamen at 05:30 the next day, with a flight duration of 10 hours and 55 minutes.

The new route complements KLM Royal Dutch Airlines' existing Xiamen - Amsterdam route, also on a thrice-weekly schedule.

Xiamen Airlines has upgraded both the air and ground services for the new intercontinental route, with a concerted effort on integrating Chinese cultural elements into its services. As an example, the new tableware for the first class and business class cabins are made of blanc de chine, and authentic highly-reputed lapsang souchong tea will be on offer in the two cabins.

Xiamen Airlines operates a fleet of 119 Boeing jets, which is one of the biggest all-Boeing fleets in China. The fleet now has 5 Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners, with the sixth to be delivered soon. As part of the expansion plans for further intercontinental routes originating from Fujian province, the airline has ordered 4 more advanced Boeing 787-9 aircraft, forming a fleet of 10 Boeing 787s.

Xiamen Airlines will launch direct Xiamen - Sydney flights at the end of this year.
