A new direct air flight between Chengdu in southwest China's Sichuan Province and Los Angeles began Wednesday.

The flight on Hainan Airlines by Boeing 787 is scheduled twice a week.

The Los Angeles-bound flight will leave from Chengdu at 9:15 p.m. (Beijing time) every Wednesday and Sunday and arrive in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. (local time).

The return flight will take off from Los Angeles at 00:45 a.m. (local time) every Monday and Thursday, and land in Chengdu at 6:40 a.m. (Beijing time) the following day.

This is the second non-stop service between Chengdu and the United States. The first linked with San Francisco in 2014.



Experts with the World Tourism Organization (WTO) have said that Yunnan Province is poised to become one of Asia's most sought-after travel destinations as well in the next 20 years.

Home to 25 ethnic groups, Yunnan is mysterious and appealing to European and American tourists who are amazed at the ethnic culture and various customs here.
