The Hohhot-Xiliinhot-Hailaar air route has officially launched in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, with the maiden flight completed on Sept 1, according to local media reports.
The Hohhot-Xiliinhot-Hailaar flight, operated by Genghis Khan Airlines on an ARJ21 aircraft, connects the Xiliin Gol Grassland and Hulunbuir Grassland, which are two of the four great grasslands of China.
The launch of the air route has not only improved the transportation network in the autonomous region but also created a regional aviation circle connecting the capital city Hohhot to Hulunbuir. The new route is also contributing to the development of the regional economy and tourism industry.
The flight operates three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
It takes off in Hohhot at 2:30 pm and stops in Xiliinhot at 3:40 pm before finally reaching Hailaar at 6:00 pm. The return flight departs Hailaar at 7:00 pm, arrives in Xiliinhot at 8:35 pm and reaches Hohhot at 10:35 pm.
