A direct air route between Chongqing in southwest China, and Cebu in the Philippines, has been launched.
Sichuan Airlines will fly the route with an Airbus A321. The four-hour flight will depart Chongqing every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, the airlines said.
The new route is expected to promote the Philippines as a vacation destination to Chinese tourists, and will make travel between the two cities more convenient. (PNA/Xinhua)
