Hainan Airlines is selling tickets for Edinburgh-Dublin flights

As we covered recently, Hainan Airlines has just launched a triangular Beijing – Edinburgh – Dublin – Beijing service using an A330-300.

Confusingly, the routing actually goes:

Beijing-Dublin-Edinburgh-Beijing on Thursdays and Sundays

Beijing-Edinburgh-Dublin-Beijing on Tuesdays and Saturdays

Hainan is now selling Edinburgh-Dublin and Dublin-Edinburgh as ‘fifth freedom’ services, if you want to fly this route with a business class flat bed.

It is £81 return in Economy and a stonking £414 return in Business! One-way tickets are also available.  Unfortunately Hainan Airlines is not in a major alliance so there is no easy way of booking Business Class with miles.

I suspect this would be a very pleasant Economy flight, as a lot of passengers will get off before you board and legroom will be better than a standard short-haul aircraft.
