Emirates Says “Hello” To Two New Chinese Destinations

Emirates has announced it will expand its global route map to include two new destinations in China.

Beginning May 2016, Emirates will serve Yinchuan (INC) and Zhengzhou (CGO) four-times weekly. The new route complements Emirates’ existing service to Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai in mainland China.

Emirates will operate its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft on the route. Configured in a three-class configuration with room for 266 passengers, the aircraft also has room for cargo. Popular cargo items to be shipped on the route include electronics, such as cell phones, cashmere, and agricultural products.

“As China’s regions continue to open up to the global economy, Emirates remains keen to support this with the further expansion of air services in mainland China,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive at Emirates
