Using an Airbus A320 operated by Spring Airlines, the flight is scheduled four times every week.
With a distance of more than 2,400 kilometers, the journey will take 2 hours and 35 minutes.
The opening of the flight will help build a bridge for east-west cooperation, coordinated development, resumption of work and production, and win-win cooperation.
It will also further promote exchanges and cooperation in the tourism, cultural, and business sectors of the two cities.
