Hainan Airlines will officially launch non-stop service between Madrid and Shenzhen on March 22, 2018. The route will be serviced by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with two round trip flights weekly, on Mondays and Fridays. This will be Hainan Airlines’ first direct service between China and Spain.

In addition Hainan Airlines is scheduled to launch a new service between Vancouver, Tianjin and Shenzhen on May 25.  Following the roll-out of the Toronto=Beijing and Calgary=Beijing services, this will be Hainan Airlines’ third flight between Canada and China as well as the airline’s 15th service to a destination in the US and Canada.

As 2018 has been proclaimed as the Canada-China Year of Tourism, the launch of the new service will take the cooperation between the two countries on tourism to a new level. 2018 also marks the 10th anniversary of Hainan Airlines’ first flight to a destination in North America.
