Fujian lies on the southeastern coast of China and faces Taiwan across the Strait. It boasts beautiful landscape and superb living environment. The US is one of the biggest overseas tourism source markets of Fujian province with the number of US tourists standing top 3 in Fujian for years. Launched on February 15, 2017, the Xiamen Airlines’ Fuzhou-New York flight is the first intercontinental direct air route to the USA. The 14,000-kilometer route is the longest air route of Xiamen Airlines tackled by the Boeing 787-9 vessel every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. It takes 14.5 hours to complete a single trip, which is very helpful for promoting mutual exchange. The launch makes Fuzhou the first Chinese city to have a direct flight to New York after Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, which not only boosts the tourism of the USA and surrounding areas, but also makes it much easier for northern American tourists to visit Fuzhou, friends and relatives and do business. This is a new channel of Fuzhou and Fujian interacting with foreign countries, which helps Fuzhou further take advantage of its position as the “Hometown of Overseas Chinese” and accelerate the construction of pivotal airport of the gateway of the Maritime Silk Road and international aerotropolis.
