On December 7, the inaugural flight for Air China’s non-stop route between Shenzhen and Los Angeles took off from Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport. The new route adds to Shenzhen’s growing portfolio of international long-haul routes and will help to promote economic and cultural exchange between southern China and the U.S. West Coast.
In 2016, more than 5 million tourists travelled between China and the U.S., while China became the top destination for U.S. travellers in the Asia Pacific. Los Angeles also became the first U.S. city to welcome over one million Chinese visitors in the space of a year. Air China’s new non-stop route will reduce the journey time between Shenzhen and Los Angeles to just over 12 hours and provide a convenient new link for tourists and business passengers.
