Temporary Charter flights between Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and major cities in most Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member nations, will be added to facilitate the holding of the 2nd Sino-ASEAN Expo.
Information from the secretariat with the Sino-ASEAN Expo said that the new temporary charter flights would be available between October 17-24 from Nanning to Chiangmai and Bangkok in Thailand, or Yangon of Myanmar, Jakarta in Indonesia, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Phnom Pen in Cambodia, Manila in the Philippines, or Vientiane in Laos.
China International Travel Service (CITS), one of the country's leading travel service providers, which has been assigned the task of selling tickets for the charter flights, has opened outlets in most leading ASEAN cities, except Brunei, to sell the charter flight tickets.
More than 3,000 business people from ASEAN will attend the second Sino-ASEAN Expo, scheduled to open in Nanning, the permanent venue of the Sino-ASEAN Expo, on October 19.
ASEAN is composed of Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Cambodia, the Laos, and Brunei.
