A new regular air route opened Wednesday between Zhangjiajie, an acclaimed tourist destination in Central China's Hunan province, and Hong Kong.

The twice-a-week service is operated by Hong Kong low-cost carrier HK Express using an A320 aircraft with a total capacity of 180 seats.

Between Oct 18 and 29, the flight will leave Hong Kong at noon and arrive in Zhangjiajie at 2:05 pm Beijing time on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It departs Zhangjiajie at 3:05 pm and arrives in Hong Kong at 5:05 pm Beijing time.

From Oct 29 to late March 2018, it will adopt a winter schedule, with flights departing Hong Kong at 1:55 pm and 2:10 pm on Thursdays and Sundays, and arriving in Zhangjiajie at 4:05 pm and 4:20 pm respectively.

The return flight will leave Zhangjiajie at 5:55 pm on Thursdays and 5:20 pm on Sundays, and arrive in Hong Kong at 8:15 pm and 7:25 pm respectively.
