China Eastern to Cairns
The direct services announced today will bring Queensland directly to the door of the growing Chinese market and help to pave the way for the future of tourism businesses in Tropical North Queensland.
“With the announcement of China Eastern services to North Queensland today and additional Emirates services to Adelaide and Perth and additional Qantas flights to Tasmania earlier this week, we can really see that airlines are recognising the growth of Australia’s leisure destinations,” ATEC Managing Director, Felicia Mariani said today.
“This new China Eastern service will directly link Chinese visitors to one of Australia’s top destinations and shows Queensland is recognised as a highly desirable place to take a break.”
Ms Mariani said the Chinese market was key to the Australian tourism industry’s capacity to meet it growth targets through to 2020.
“There is no doubt about it, China is going to play an important part in the future of Australia’s tourism industry and we need to ensure these visitors have direct and easy access to our destinations.
“Additional capacity is crucial and ATEC welcomes this new direct service announced by China Eastern today.”
