Route: Zhangjiajie International Airport to Chengdu International Airport
Departure date and time of flight: 15:00 on 5th August 2015
Flight number: CA4378
Flight duration: 1 hour
Class: Economy Class
Aircraft type: Airbus A320
Punctuality of the flight:
The flight departed on time and landed on time. Zhangjiajie airport is located on the banks of the enormous Tianmen Mountain and is surrounded by mountains from all corners. Zhangjiaje must be one of the most beautiful airports I have been to in China. Tianmen Mountain provides a magnificent backdrop, and on a clear day you can clearly see the peak summit (likewise, the airport and the surrounding area can be seen from the top of the mountain as well).
There is only one direct flight a week from Zhangjiajie to Chengdu. You can take connecting flights if you wish.
Any baggage issues:
I had a large backpack, weighing around 12kg, which I checked-in as hold luggage. This was the first time I had taken a trip with a backpack, and without much hand luggage.

This Airbus A320 aircraft has a seat configuration of 3-3 with an all Economy Class seat set up. The plane was clean and the toilets were clean too. It was not full at all. Not bad a flight after all. The crew were friendly, too.
About Airline PR
This is a special section on Airline Branding, and Airline Public Relations written by me on all the flights I have been fortunate enough to have been on. These are not records taken from somewhere else, but are actual flights I have been on. Most of the flight trips are officially sponsored by the airline companies in order to promote their certain routes, and aircraft. Airline promotion and PR related work in the aviation industry is one of my expertise.
