I'm not surprised, as Urumqi and the surrounding attractions (Turpan, etc) are a major draw for Japanese tourists. Urumqi actually has pretty spiffy aviation facilities, in addition to being an all-around cool city -- v. different vibe from coastal China.

On a related note, is Xianjiang Airlines still a going concern, or has it merged into one of the other Chinese carriers?

China Xinjiang Airlines(XO) has been absorbed into China Southern Airlines(CZ) considering Xinjiang is supposed to be an "autonomous" province along with Tibet, they should have been allowed to retain their own airline, but I guess China wants to integrate the region more, this way they now have a major airline representing them from Urumqi which is good, even Air China have launched operations to the city with their 777s.

CZ have gained the following from XO, all served from Urumqi with 757s:

Russia (Moscow, Novosibirsk)
Kazakhstan (Almaty)
Kyrghyzstan (Bishkek)
Pakistan (Islamabad)

Two other destinations that were served by XO, Ekatrinburg in Russia and Uzbekistan (Tashkent) were axed.

Isn't CZ flying from Urumqi to Dubai ?

Having recently been in Dubai, I've seen a CZ flight arriving from Urumqi, full of chinese workers.

CZ fly to both Sharjah as well as Dubai in the UAE from Beijing with an enroute stop in Urumqi using 757s. UAE is the only Middle East country in their network.

Forgot to mention ANA will be using a 767 for the charter service.

Sharjah and Dubai have seperate flights and are CZ's own destinations they have not gained them through mergers.
