Connecting Cultures: Embark on an Adventure with New Direct Flights from Haikou to Apia, Samoa

An air route linking Haikou and Apia, the capital of Samoa, was launched on Sunday, marking the start of a regular direct flight between the two countries.

The flight, operated by Hainan Airlines, will depart Haikou every Saturday with the flight number HU435, flying back the next day with the flight number HU436.

The direct flight between Haikou and Apia will take around 9 hours and 20 minutes.

No listed Flights
Editor’s note: Despite searching all the major travel booking websites including Hainan Airlines own site, we cannot find any listing of the Haikou Apia flights. This is because it is a charter flight, and we suggest contacting Hainan Airlines directly for more information on flight details.

The new air route aims to serve as a vital bridge, fostering exchanges and cooperation not only in the realms of tourism and culture but also in the fields of economy and trade.
