China Southern relaunches Beijing-Urumqi-Tehran route

The Xinjiang Branch of China Southern Airlines will relaunch its international air route from Beijing to Tehran via Urumqi with a total flight time of nine hours.

Three flights have been arranged each week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Flight CZ6025 will leave Beijing Capital International Airport and get to Urumqi Diwopu International Airport at 21:00, and then arrive at Tehran Airport at 21:30 local time.
