Hainan Airlines will launch the only nonstop service from LAX to central China on January 21, 2016. Hainan will connect passengers to Changsha, capital of Hunan Province, a metropolis of over 7 million people famous for its world-renowned cuisine and rich history.
The new route is part of Hainan’s large-scale expansion in North America. On the west coast, Hainan already operates nonstop service between Silicon Valley (SJC) and Beijing, and from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Beijing and Shanghai. As a mileage partner with Alaska Airlines, passengers can earn miles on Alaska and connect between Hainan’s west coast gateways and numerous points throughout North America.
The new service between LAX and Changsha will be flown by Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Hainan is the airline with the most nonstop 787 Dreamliner routes between China and North America.
This flight will debut Hainan’s award-winning service and premium amenities to travelers in Los Angeles. This is the sixth North American market served by Hainan, complementing the airline’s direct service between China and Chicago, Boston, Toronto, San Jose and Seattle.
