Airport - More direct flights from China - SantanderCB

Direct flights between Beijing and Manchester four times a week are due to begin next month.

Visit Britain yesterday launched a partnership with Hainan Airlines Group during a visit to China by culture secretary John Whittingdale.

The tourism body wants to make Britain the most welcoming European destination for Chinese travellers, and the number of Chinese visitors to the UK is expected to rise by about 92,000 a year.

Tourism chiefs estimate that the new influx will contribute more than £230m to the UK economy.
