I would like to see what airlines want to serve Urumqi from Europe.
|Quoting Rivet42 (Reply 8):|
Quite. I've backpacked acros Xinjiang, and I can't really see any potential for Europe-Urumqi flights... But maybe someone found something 'interesting' in the great big dusty desert...!

...Ha, ha, ha, I know what your name means, even if others don't, but your use the Chinese name for Urumqi is a bit of a giveaway!

I can quite see the possibility of KLM being tempted into this market on a triangular route. They already operate several flights a week on the A332 into Almaty (ALA) in neighbouring Kazakhstan and Urumqi (URC) is only just over 500 miles away. With the discount landing fees it could be a useful way into a niche market - potentially even codesharing on some China Southern flights onwards in China.

Not to mention the Chengdu flights - one of the more interesting recent additions to a European 'major's' network.
How are these CTU flights doing?
|Quoting UpperDeck79 (Reply 16):|
KLM is the only European airline flying there, and that's 2-3 times weekly.... so not that promising, I believe.
