Marseille, France’s lively Mediterranean harbor city and the nation’s second-largest urban hub distinguished as the entrance to Provence’s cerulean coastline, has cultivated a distinct relationship with Shanghai since their establishment of sister city ties in 1973. With the introduction of nonstop flights, voyagers bid farewell to the necessity of transiting through an intermediary location.

In further enhancing convenience, China Eastern Airlines revealed a specialized transfer hub at Shanghai’s bustling Hongqiao Railway Station in January 2024. This pioneering initiative underscores the airline’s dedication to seamless travel, providing passengers journeying from various regions of the country to Shanghai by high-speed rail with a trouble-free transition to their flights.

As an illustration, visitors destined for Marseille can expeditiously finalize check-in formalities and deposit their baggage upon arrival at Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station, enabling them to effortlessly explore the city before making their way to Shanghai Pudong International Airport in the evening for security screenings and direct boarding.
