Hainan Airlines Set for Dublin Return
Hainan Airlines are set for a return to Dublin Airport with a direct service from Beijing starting on 27th June and operating twice weekly until 7th October. Hainan Airlines previously operated a direct service from China to Dublin from 2018 until late 2019. The airline was expected to return to Dublin in 2020 but this was cancelled due to the pandemic. The service will be operated on Tuesdays and Saturdays by an Airbus A330-300 aircraft fitted with 32 flatbed seats in Business Class and 260 seats in Economy seats.
Flight HU751 will depart from Beijing at 02.50 with a 07.00 arrival in Dublin. The return flight, HU752, will depart Dublin at 12.20 with a 05.10 arrival the following morning. When Hainan Airlines previously operated, the service was operated in conjunction with their service to Edinburgh. Edinburgh will now receive its own direct service with twice weekly services on a Monday and Friday.
