First direct flight from China lands at Edinburgh Airport6/12/2018
The Hainan Airlines flight from Beijing is scheduled to run twice a week.
It is hoped the route will help attract thousands more Chinese tourists and students. It will also reduce the cost for Scots, who will be able to travel without connecting flights.
Chinese tourism has already contributed £26.5m to Edinburgh’s economy.飛機票查詢
Two further return flights between the two cities each week will go via Dublin.
Airbus A330-300 will fly from Beijing to Dublin and then onto Edinburgh and then back to Beijing on Thursdays and Sundays, flying to Edinburgh and then Dublin and then back to Beijing on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Edinburgh’s Lord Provost Frank Ross said: “This is the culmination of a lot of hard work by a number of organisations and it is fantastic for all of us to see the new flight schedule up and running.
“As the only Scottish city with a direct flight to China, the new route will provide Edinburgh with substantial outreach to Asia for tourism, business travel and investment opportunities.
“This will be supported by many across the retail, hotel and restaurant sectors through the city’s innovative ‘China Ready’ campaign and I’m sure it will also be welcomed by Edinburgh’s many business travellers and holidaymakers.”

Air China flight turns back to Beijing just after take-off because of smoke in cabin6/12/2018

An Air China flight had to return to Beijing’s main airport shortly after it took off on Saturday evening when smoke appeared in the cabin, a local newspaper reports.
Flight CA1639 bound for Harbin, in Heilongjiang province near China’s border with Russia, turned back at about 8.30pm after crew and passengers noticed the smoke, The Beijing News reported on Sunday.Shanghai to Taipei flights
The airline transferred passengers to a different plane at the Beijing Capital International Airport for their flight to Harbin.One passenger told a family member that the cabin had “filled with smoke” and they had been asked to leave the aircraft immediately after it landed and not to take their luggage with them, the report said.
An Air China spokesperson told the newspaper the plane had returned because of a “strange smell” on the plane, without elaborating.
It comes after an Air China flight went into an emergency descent on July 10, plunging 25,000 feet 30 minutes after it took off from Hong Kong and triggering the release of oxygen masks. The plane then climbed back to 26,000 feet and continued its journey, landing safely in Dalian, Liaoning province.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China fined the airline 50,000 yuan (US$7,500), cut its flight hours and revoked the licences of two pilots. One of them had been smoking an e-cigarette in the cockpit, and an investigation found he had tried to turn off the circulation fan to prevent smoke from reaching the cabin, but mistakenly switched off the air conditioning instead – resulting in insufficient oxygen in the cabin. A third pilot had his licence suspended for six months and has been banned from flying any Air China plane for two years.
