NEW DIRECT FLIGHT FROM XI'AN ARRIVES IN BUDAPEST

 

A new direct flight between Budapest and Xi’an, the capital of China’s Shaanxi Province, will connect the two countries’ culture and economy, Boglárka Illés, the foreign ministry state secretary for bilateral relations, said at the inaugural ceremony at Liszt Ferenc Airport. The new flight brings the number of direct flights between Hungary and China to 21 a week, with the Shanghai-Budapest route adding a stopover in Xi’an once a week, every Saturday, Illés said. In addition, there will be one weekly direct flight between Xi’an and Budapest, providing direct access to China’s 7th big city, the eastern end of the Silk Road, and Shaanxi province, the cradle of Chinese civilisation, she said.
