Heathrow to be linked to another China city this summer

China Southern will start three flights a week to the city from May 30. Wuhan is about 300km to the west of Shanghai and Hangzhou and straddles the Yangtze River, making it a regular stop for river cruises.


It is the main city of the Hubei province with a population of around 11 million and was briefly the country’s capital in the 1920s.


China Southern will fly to Wuhan on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, departing Heathrow at 22.10 and arriving the next day at 15.35. Flights will be on an Airbus A330-200, with departures from China at 14.25, arriving at 18.45 the same day.


China Southern is a Skyteam member with its major hub in Guangzhou, the commercial city it also serves from Heathrow. Wuhan will be Heathrow’s sixth China destination. The airport also offers Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Qingdao.
