Air China is now also flying nonstop from Frankfurt to Shenzhen and from Frankfurt to Chengdu. Located in the south-west of the country, Chengdu is the third important hub in Air China's route network after Beijing and Shanghai and thus also offers excellent transfer options. For example, China has particularly good connections to the southern metropolis of Guangzhou and western destinations such as Kunming, Urumqi and Lhasa. Travel time can be significantly reduced by comparison with transferring via Beijing or Shanghai. Chengdu also serves as an important regional and international hub with connections to the regional destinations of Hong Kong and Taipei, but also to international destinations such as Singapore, Bangalore, Kathmandu and Karachi.
