Xi 'an - Helsinki filght also signals the end of xi 'an has been have no direct flight to Europe, noq to any European city and xi 'an will reach you within 14 hours, one of the fastest city less than eight hours.
The ticket price is about 6000RMB.
The flight time is:
Helsinki to Xi'an: Each Tuesday, Friday, Sunday in summer (local time) off from Helsinki, arrived in xi 'an for the next day at 6:30 in the morning (Beijing time), the flight time is 7 hours and 50 minutes.
Xi 'an - Helsinki: Each Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, off time is 10:35 (Beijing time), arrived in Helsinki (local time) is 14:15, the flight time is 8 hours and 40 minutes.
I would expect flights from Frankfurt, London and Amsterdam to be more strategic if they are not already at Xian. This flight indicates that there likely is enough travel to Xian from Helsinki.
Why not yo travel to chengdu? There will be a direct flight from chengdu to London. You can go to London with taking a cute panda ;-)
Thanks Mike, That is good to know. Have been to Chengdu but saw the Panda's in my Home City Zoo. (Of all the extensive cross China tours I am missing the Panda Breeding Grounds, Tiger Leaping Gorge, and Yellow mountain.)
Please confirm or correct me. The major Airline (internationally connecting) hubs to china are Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, Secondly Guangzhou, and Chengdu.
Mike is this 6,000 fare round trip to Helsinki and return ? I would also pay for fuel or surcharges.? My girlfriend lives in St. Petersburg. David
From the news the single direct flight price is 4890rmb, it will reduce the price to be 3960rmb if the flight has 2 lift transfer. I think the round flight fee is near 8000rmb around.
All the flight fee will be higher than the common days from Sept.
Meanwhile price increased.
In October 2013 it is almost 9000 Kuai for a return ticket to major destinations in Europe.
Finnair is a low-buget-airline for people with big wallets.
Means, one have to pay for any little shit.
I made a seat reservation online and was surprised that they charged me 550 Kuai afterwards, just for this.
Other Airlines have better offers (of course via Beijing. ChengDu).
