On Monday, China’s Xiamen Airlines kicked off its inaugural flight linking Seattle with¬†Shenzhen and Xiamen.

It’s a big deal for the airline, as the route represents their first route to the United States and the first direct route between the US and Shenzhen – one of China’s wealthiest cities.

Here are few more pics from the inaugural day events.
