SYDNEY, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Tianjin Airlines' Chongqing-Sydney route has transferred 7,057 passengers since the route was opened on Nov. 27, 2023, according to the Chongqing-Sydney Route Promotion Event held in Sydney on Friday.

The route is between Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport and Sydney Airport, with flights operating twice a week.

Xiao Xiayong, minister-counsellor of the Chinese Embassy in Australia, said at the event that the opening and development of the Chongqing-Sydney route will undoubtedly further strengthen personnel exchanges between the two sides and help the development of Chongqing, a national core city.

He said that there have been more and more exchanges of people between China and Australia in recent years, along with the resumption of airline services. Since 2023, Hainan Airlines, Tianjin Airlines and Beijing Capital Airlines have resumed flights between the two countries, providing safe travel and thoughtful services for Chinese and Australian passengers.

Meanwhile, Chongqing Airport Group Co., Ltd. has strengthened its cooperation with Hainan Airlines and other domestic and overseas carriers, constantly improved the international route layout of Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport, and made solid progress in the construction of international routes, international aviation hubs and world-class airport, he added.

"We hope that the airlines and airports of China and Australia will continue to expand their route networks and build efficient, convenient and smooth air bridges for personnel exchanges, economic and trade cooperation and cultural exchanges between the two countries," Xiao said.

The event was hosted by Chongqing Airport Group Co., Ltd. and Tianjin Airlines, drawing some dozens of government and business representatives from China and Australia.
