Beijing Capital Airlines, a regional subsidiary of HNA Group, is waiting government approval to adjust its nonstop Hangzhou-Madrid service with a stopover in Chengdu.
Starting September 2016, the Beijing-based carrier will operate the Hangzhou-Chengdu-Madrid service with two flights weekly, using Airbus A330 aircraft, according to an announcement released Wednesday on the website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
Capital Airlines officially started its Hangzhou-Madrid service on December 28, 2015, marking the first nonstop route between East China and Spain.
The Air Transportation Department of CAAC is soliciting public comments on the application until 5:00 p.m. on June 22, 2016.
