According to the officials at the China Eastern Airline, from the 8th, July, the airline will launch a new air route between Chengdu and Lhasa that so far only dominated by the Air China and the Sichuan Airline. According to the schedule, the new flight departs Chengdu at 9:25 AM and arrives in Lhasa at 11:15 AM. And, it will head back at 12:00 while arrive in Chengdu at 13:55 PM. It is said that the China Eastern Airline has been applying for operating this route for many years but always denied for one reason or another. It is until this month that the Chinese General Administration of Civil Aviation just approved the airline's application.
With the approaching of the peak season at Tibet tourism, the demand of air tickets now becomes very hot, not only happens to cities like Xi'an, Beijing or Chongqing that only got one or two direct flights to Lhasa per day, but also applies to Chengdu that enjoys more than 6 or 7 direct flights per day to Lhasa. Now, even with the participation of the China Eastern Airline, the price of air ticket from Chengdu to Lhasa seldom offers discount as the demand still remain very large. But we can speculate that maybe the competition now has started.

1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?
2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?
Dear Ms. Ho***,
Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
