CSA is the biggest Asian airline having 660 planes under its fleet and it is the only airline in the world that has both Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 in its fleet.
The airlines specifically chose Lahore and Urumqi as first destinations because Urumqi holds great economic value and is the west gateway of China to the rest of the world.
