Chartered flights between Haikou and Penang, Malaysia, are to be launched on 16th November, according to reports.

The move is amongst efforts by Hainan to boost the number of inbound tourists from Malaysia.

Flights between the two cities will save Malaysian tourists visiting Hainan from having to transfer in Guangzhou, Hong Kong or Singapore, greatly shortening the travel time between the two cities.

According to reports, chartered flights between Haikou and Penang will run once a week starting from 16th November.

A total of 8 flights will be operated. Message
