China Airways welcomes you to North Korea!

Beijing, People's Republic of China - 21 September 1999: Today, China Airways, the flag carrier of the People's Republic of China is proud to announce the addition of Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) to its ever expanding list of destinations. The brand new non-stop daily service will operate seven days a week from Beijing Capital International Airport using China Airways' latest aircraft, the Boeing 737-800.

Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea

As China Airways' fifth international destination, the sowewhat controversial North Korean capital city, Pyongyang, is unlike any other on earth. An ideological statement forged in concrete, bronze and marble, Pyongyang is the ultimate totalitarian metropolis, built almost entirely from scratch following its destruction in the Korean War. The city offers breathtaking monuments, towers, statues and buildings that includes the Triumphal Arch, the Tower of the Juche Idea and the Mansudae Grand Monument and a rendering of founder of the People's Republic of Korea, Kim Il-sung eternalised in bronze. While these are all impressive, a gentle stroll on Pyongyang’s relaxed Moran Hill, amongst many other things, is a great way to experience the locals having picnics, playing music and idling away sunny afternoons.

The expansion into North Korea initiated China Airways' third phase of its expansion plans. The airline also expanded its domestic route network and now offers daily flights from Beijing to:

  • Two major cities in the Liaoning Province - The seaport city Dalian and Shenyang the largest city in Northeast China
  • Qingdao, another seaport and major industrial centre in eastern Shandong Province, Eastern China
  • Nanjing, the second-largest commercial centre in the East China region

Shenyang, the largest city in Northeast China

Additionally China Airways now flies to five destinations in South Korea with a new daily flight to Gimpo International Airport, the third largest airport in South Korea.

Currently China Airways offers daily flights to 27 destinations in China and North & South Korea to over 6,000 passengers every day. The immediate expansion into North and South Korea will help strengthening ties between the three countries and promote international travel and tourism.

China Airways lands in Japan's friendliest city

Beijing, People's Republic of China - 23 November 1999: Japan's southernmost metropolis, sunny Kagoshima has become China Airways' first Japanese and it's seventh international destination. The new full service, fulfilled by the airline's brand new Boeing 737-700 aircraft will operate daily return flights to Kagoshima - connecting the passengers of China Airways with the Land of the Rising Sun for the first time!

The volcanic tropical paradise of Kagoshima!

Voted as Japan's friendliest city, Kagoshima was the natural choice for China Airways' first route to Japan. A volcanic tropical paradise that could easily become known as the 'Hawaii of Japan', Kagoshima is one of the easiest places to get up close and personal with live volcanoes. While the massive three-peak volcano, active continuously, rises like a giant broken molar out of the surrounding blue waters of Kinko Bay, Yakushima, one of Kagoshima's many outlying islands and a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a ferry ride away to see giant cedar trees, dive and snorkel with tropical fish, hike the highest mountain in all of Kyuushuu (Mount Miyanoura), and see unique species such as Yaku monkeys and Yaku deer. At the tranquil tip of Kagoshima's Satsuma peninsula lies the tourist town of Ibusuki, famous for its amazing hot sand baths. The magma is so close to the surface that it warms the sandy beaches of the town. For a few hundred yen, cheery octogenarians will bury visitors up to their neck and even mop the sweat from their brows as they cook in the sand for as long as they can handle it. It's an experience hot spring buffs travel from all over Japan to enjoy! The new air connection between China and Japan's Kagoshima will boost international travel and tourism to this tropical paradise and reveal there's more to Japan than Tokyo and sushi.

The Xichan temple, a popular tourist attraction in Fuzhou, one of China Airways' new domestic destinations.

Additionally China Airways' domestic route network now stands strong at 25 routes with daily flights to destinations across China. The latest additions include Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province and home to the Tengwang Pavilion, a towering pavilion on the east bank of the Gan River and one of "the Four Great Towers of China"; the "mild and pleasant land" of Wenzhou in southern Zhejiang Province and Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian province and home of the famous Wu Ta (??) "Black Pagoda".

Currently China Airways provides over 7,500 daily passengers with its world class full onboard service to 32 destinations in China, North & South Korea and now Japan. The airline has got several aircraft on order as part of its immediate short and medium haul expansion plans.
