In addition, the Sichuan Airlines will open direct flights from Chengdu to Tokyo and Osaka in June.
With the furthering partnership between China and Russia, the bilateral trade of the two countries has been in a new stage.

Four weekly flights will be offered from Chengdu to Tokyo, and three flights a week to Osaka. Currently, only the Air Nippon Airways is operating the route between Chengdu and Tokyo. There will be more choices for travelers to depart from Chengdu after the direct air service opens.
