The Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development in association with Hainan Airlines hosted an informative seminar at the Guiness Storehouse in Dublin. Following presentations by the Beijing team,the Embassy of the Peoples Republic of China and Frank Wong from Hainan Airlines there was a draw for prizes and the winner of two tickets with Hainan Airlines from Dublin to Beijing was Hugh Boyle.
Beijing is truly an amazing city that is an amalgam of China’s ancient history and a nation that has developed a booming economy. Now that there are direct flights from Dublin Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport with Hainan Airlines, these will open up many new destinations to Irish business and leisure travellers. This new service is the first between Ireland and China.
The airline operates a route strategy of large hub to smaller cities and is considering new routes on an ongoing basis. Perhaps their next route from Ireland could be to one of their focus cities, such as Shenzhen. This routing offers onward flights to Oceania with destinations such as Auckland, Brisbane, Cairns and Chiang Rai.
