HAIKOU, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- A direct flight service linking Russia's Khabarovsk with Haikou, capital of southern China's Hainan Province, started on Friday.
It is the sixth direct international air route that Haikou opened to Russian cities since April to cope with a rising demand for China's tropical island tour experience to Russia after the tropical island expanded the visa-free policy.
The other five air routes link Haikou with Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ufa, Kazan and Samara in Russia.
