On 14th, August, Sichuan Airline announced the first flight schedule from Chongqing to Hongyuan had been launched. Chongqing is now the second city connected to Hongyuan by flight after Chengdu. According to the latest news from Sichuan Airline, there is only one flight on Monday and Friday transferring between Chongqing Jiangbei Airport and Hongyuan Airport. Hongyuan Airport, with Jiuzhaigou Huanglong Airport, will serve more tourists who are planning to visit Jiuzhaigou, Hongyuan Prairie, Ruoergai Wetland, Dagu Glacier, etc.
Dagu Glacier Scenic Park will get a huge profit from this new airline. It used to be a desolate destination mostly due to the inconvenient transfer both from Chengdu and Chongqing. Now, tourist only have to take a short driving of 80 minutes from Hongyuan Airport to Dagu Galacier.
