Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 3 January 2014

Tigerair has launched flights to the seaport city of Ningbo in China. The Singapore-based airline will fly to Ningbo three times every fortnight, on every alternate Thursday, Tuesday and Saturday.

Ningbos comprehensive and reliable transport networks makes it an ideal first stop for those who want to explore various key Chinese cities in a single itinerary, said Mr Ho Yuen Sang, Chief Operating Officer at Tigerair. We are proud to be the only airline making a direct Ningbo call from Singapore, and look forward to better serving our customers with this new Tigerair destination.

Thanks to its strategic location and exceptional connectivity to regional Chinese cities, Ningbos bustling seaport has become a gateway for the export of electrical products, industrial tools and textiles, and ranks second only to Shanghai in terms of the amount of cargo handled annually.

The citys superb rail infrastructure connects it to the major cities of Wenzhou, Nanjing and Hangzhou via high-speed bullet trains travelling at speeds of up to 350 kilometres per hour. This enables commuters to reach Hangzhou in a mere 26 minutes, while reducing traveling time to Nanjing from five hours to two.

Ningbo is also the door to one of the worlds longest sea-crossing bridgea - the 36-kilometre long Hangzhou Bay Bridge. An architectural masterpiece that took nine years in its making, the S-shaped stayed-cable bridge opened in 2008 with six lanes running in either direction, providing access across the entire Hangzhou Bay by connecting Ningbo to the municipalities of Shanghai, while shortening the distance between them by 120 kilometres. The bridge effectively completes the transport network of Chinas Golden Industrial Triangle between Ningbo, Shanghai and Hangzhou, which together form the most vibrant economic zone in the Mainland and accounts for over 21% of Chinas gross domestic product.

To take that convenience one step further, new bus shuttle services between Ningbo Lishe International Airport and the East Railway Station make it even easier for travelers to access bullet train services to and from Beijing, Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Wenzhou and Xiamen.
