Sichuan Airlines Launches Chengdu - Helsinki - Copenhagen Flights

Sichuan Airlines has launched non-stop flights between Chengdu and Helsinki, Finland.

Originally, Sichuan Airlines had planned to launch direct flights from Chengdu to Copenhagen but later decided to stop in Helsinki first, transforming the airline's original Chengdu-Copenhagen service into a Chengdu-Helsinki-Copenhagen service.

The airline will operate the route with Airbus A330 aircraft two times per week on Mondays and Fridays.
