Chinese flights to Siberia

Fri Jul 05, 2019 12:17 am

https://flightaware.com/live/flight/CES9925 Just found that China eastern airlines has started flying DAILY between Ordos Inner Mongolia and Irkutsk, What’s the point of this route? Why ordos? Seems like China eastern has discovered cities in Russia worth flying to beyond St. Petersburg and Moscow

I don't think a lot of the recently added international flights from the Chinese carriers will stick. Ordos is kind of a ghost city, Hohhot maybe, but I really scratch my head seeing Ordos.

Answer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Baikal

In short, during the summer season a lot of Chinese tourist groups go to Lake Baikal, as a result of a combination of avoiding the heat, visa-free (for tourist groups) and relatively cheap fare. That's why there's heaps of flights between IKT and China (and a few to UUD as well).

Understandable but why Ordos???? All of a sudden during the summer season there’s enough demand for a daily flight...

Russia obviously isn't only about LED and MOW. Korean carriers fly to Khabarovsk and Vladivostok. TK is also all over regional cities.

The largest rare earth materials deposit in the world is 200km north of Ordos airport. Irkutsk is areospace and science. So these two are probably connected.
