It is the fifth direct flight to Japan from Nanjing after links to Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa and Sapporo.

The Nanjing-Nagoya flight service, operated by Juneyao Airlines with an Airbus A320 on a daily basis, is scheduled to depart Nanjing at 11:00 am and arrive in Nagoya at 2:40 pm local time.

The return flight will take off at 3:40 pm local time and land in Nanjing at 5:50 pm, said a source with the Lukou International Airport in Nanjing.

Passengers who take the flights are allowed to carry 2 pieces of checked baggage, each up to 23 kilograms, as well as a carry-on bag weighing up to 10 kilograms, according to the airport source.
