Internal flights in China
Post: #1
Ben/Carol2

Carol has asked a question in the Tour Managers Section about what liquids you can carry on board the internal flights. I have looked at the Air China website and cannot find an answer. We have to take a small bag with us for the flight to Chendgde because it is only a small plane. Is there a hold on the plane where bags can go, or is all luggage carried on. How much liquids can you take on board ie Shower Gel --Shampoo--Mossie Sprays--etc if it has all to be carried on. Do you know if the Hotels provide things like Shampoos and Soap and Towels in the Bathrooms. I know we take them for granted, but it is best to know beforehand. Hope this makes sense.
Olly told me just before he left that John Drylie would be our Tour Manager, is this still the case please.

I'll try not to ask too many more questions.

Good morning Peter,

I think you may have got slightly mixed up here, there isn't a flight to Chengde you will go by train as below on the return to Beijing for the flight to Xian. You will carry your overnight bag with you on this flight, you need to be carrying only bottles of no more than 100mls and no sharp objects.

I have pasted below an excerpt from the final information you will received in the near future,

I hope this helps,

Kindest,

Ben

Hello Ben

Sorry, I got confused. I knew the trip to Chengde was by train. I was thinking about the flight to Xian, because in one of your earlier replies you had said that we took an overnight bag becaus the plane was smaller.

Hello Peter,

My apologies, I think it was me that got my wires crossed, I have so many replies to make on here sometimes, one customers question blends in with others! Feel like i lose a marble or two some days! All good fun though!

You will need your overnight bag for the train journey out to Chengde, your main case will stay in Beijing, you will then be reunited with your case in time for the flight to Xian,

I hope this helps,

Kindest,

Ben
