Fastest way to get to the outback!

China Eastern Airlines announced that a direct flight linking Wuhan with Sydney will be launched in January 2017, with regular flights on each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

As introduced, the aircraft takes off at Xi’an at 20:45, arrives at Wuhan Tianhe Airport at 22:00 and finally lands at Sydney Airport at 10:30 next day after a 11-hour journey, cutting the time needed at present by four to six hours.

As early as September of 2015, Hubei Wanda New Air Line International Travel Service Co., Ltd signed a protocol with Jetstar Airways of Australia to open a chart flight between Wuhan and Gold Coast. However, the air route was closed since this month.
