Jinan, capital of East China's Shandong province, opened its first flight route to Shigatse, Tibet autonomous region on March 29, greatly shortening the travel time between the two places.
The flight will depart from Jinan Yaoqiang Airport at 7:55 am every day and make a stop at Xi'an, Shaanxi province before arriving at Shigatse Heping Airport at 14:00.
The Jinan–Xi'an–Shigatse airline is the second flight route that connects Shandong to Tibet. The new route will further strengthen exchange between Shandong and Shaanxi and southwestern areas in China including Tibet.
Jinan serves as the aid city for Panam county in Shigatse. The opening of the flight will not only benefit the assistance rendered, but also provides more convenient and efficient travel between the two places.
The daily flight from Jinan to Dali, Yunan province via Changsha, Hunan province also opened on March 29.
