The COVID-19 outbreak in China has subsided recently, and a number of domestic passenger flights that fly in and out of Yantai in East China's Shandong province have been gradually restored since May 18 in an effort to accommodate passengers' travel demands.
Yantai Penglai International Airport has also launched a new air route between Shandong's Heze and Urumchi, the capital of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, thanks to Shandong Airlines and Heze Airport's collaborative efforts.
The new Yantai - Hezew - Urumchi route is the first provincial route at Yantai Penglai International Airport that has resumed operations, and is also the first one that has began operations to Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, which will not only meet the growing travel demands of passengers, but also give a boost to the resumption of tourism sectors in the three cities.
Efforts have also been made by Yantai Airport to promote the resumption of the existing flights. Currently, a large number of flights from Yantai to provincial capitals and key cities have gradually reopened. Yantai airport authorities stated that they will work hard to promote the restoration of cross-provincial flights, such as those to Beijing, Shanghai, Yinchuan, and Wuxi, in order to provide more convenience to tourists.
