Travel Media and Hainan Airlines hosted a fantastic night at the Iveagh Garden Hotel in Dublin city centre to celebrate the launch of the new direct service to China. The Skytrax, 5-star rated airline will operate four times a week from Dublin commencing 12th June 2018. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, it's non-stop to Beijing, and on Thursday and Sunday it will stop over in Edinburgh.

 

Ryan Zhang (Hainan Airlines GM Ireland) told the travel trade and media more about China's largest privately owned airline. Hainan flies to 110 cities worldwide including Australia, New Zealand as well as over 40 domestic connections in China via Beijing. Ryan also mentioned how Skytrax rated them as the 9th best in the world and the airline is rated 3rd safest worldwide by JACDEC. What was most impressive was the fact that business class passengers receive Bose noise cancelling headphones onboard!

 

The night finished up with a fun quiz and draw to win a return trip for 2 on the new direct route. The lucky winner on the night was Karen White (American Holidays). Now only if she knew someone that could help her out with an escorted tour of Beijing.....
