Bad news for frequent fliers of Yunnan routes: China Eastern Airlines raised full-fare economy ticket prices for flights within Yunnan by as much as 20 percent earlier this week.
Other airlines, including China Southern and Lucky Air, are expected to follow suit and enact similar price hikes.
Following is a list of China Eastern's new rates for Yunnan:
Kunming - Tengchong: 1000 yuan
Kunming - Xishuangbanna: 990 yuan
Kunming - Lijiang: 940 yuan
Kunming - Lincang: 750 yuan
Kunming - Wenshan: 700 yuan
Kunming - Shangri-La: 1110
Kunming - Mangshi: 1000 yuan
Kunming - Pu'er: 810 yuan
Lijiang - Xishuangbanna: 1130 yuan
Kunming - Dali: 800 yuan
Kunming - Baoshan: 810 yuan
While it remains uncommon for fliers in China to pay the full price for a ticket, the raises could drive up average actual ticket prices.© Copyright 2005-2020 GoKunming.com all rights reserved. This material may not be republished, rewritten or redistributed without permission.
