According to a Finnish magazine Talouselämä Air China will open PVG-LED route four times a week in summer 2007. This is not good news for AY's Asia strategy. AC does now codeshare many of AY's China flights. China is investing a lot to ST. Petersburg and there are already a lot of chinese people living there.
Nowadays a lot of both russians and chinese people use HEL and AY on their flights to Asia.
