The Hunan Airlines route from Changsha airport to LAX started on 21st of January. The flight takes a total of 13 hours and 30 minutes, the first direct airline route from Hunan to the USA.

This route will use the newest Boeing 747 model planes, and will run twice a week; on Mondays and Thursdays, the plane will take off at 13:00 Beijing time, and will arrive at Los Angeles airport by 10:35 PST; the return route will set offfrom LAX at 12:35 PST and arrive in Changsha by 19:20 Beijing time. 

This will be much easier than the Changsha to Beijing/Shanghai/Guangzhou transfer route, which passengers had to go through before when traveling. There won't be any stop overs or transfers now for travelers who wish to go to the US. 

Thus allowing Changsha to take another great step towards becoming the international metropolis which the people of Changsha are yearning for. Arriving at Los Angeles, there is a range of attractions which visitors can choose from; including Universal Studios, Disneyland California, Harvard University!
