Shanghai-based carrier Juneyao Air is to launch flights to Manchester on 31 March next year.

The service will be operated as a Shanghai Pudong-Helsinki-Manchester route, flown three times a week.

Juneyao Air will operate the route with Boeing 787-9 ‘Dreamliner’, and the service will represent an extension of the existing Shanghai-Helsinki route operated by the carrier, with the same frequency and aircraft type.

“Juneyao Air is delighted to launch its first fifth-freedom route to Manchester, and we look forward to developing Manchester’s traffic growth in the coming years,” commented the airline’s chairman, Wang Junjin.”

Other connections linking China to Manchester include a twice-weekly Beijing service operated by Hainan Airlines.

Juneyao Air was established in September 2006 and now operates a fleet of 72 aircraft consisting of Airbus A320s and Dreamliners.
