Three new air routes linking Liaoning province in northeast China and Japan will be opened on April 19, according to an announcement by China Northern Airlines Thursday.
The Airbus A-300 will make the three new regular flights, one of which will link Dalian, a port city in Liaoning, with Tokyo, another Dalian with Nagoya, and the third the province's capital city of Shenyang with Tokyo. There will be return flights from all three destination cities.
China Northern Airlines has so far opened up air routes to Osaka, Toyama and Sapporo in Japan. The opening of a further three will contribute to the economic and tourism development of Japan and China, especially the northeast China region.
