The flight on Hainan Airlines by Boeing 787 is scheduled twice a week.
The Los Angeles-bound flight will leave from Chengdu at 9:15 p.m. (Beijing time) every Wednesday and Sunday and arrive in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. (local time).
The return flight will take off from Los Angeles at 00:45 a.m. (local time) every Monday and Thursday, and land in Chengdu at 6:40 a.m. (Beijing time) the following day.
This is the second non-stop service between Chengdu and the United States. The first linked with San Francisco in 2014.
