WUHAN -- China Eastern Airlines on Friday reopened its passenger flights between central China's transportational hub Wuhan and Singapore as a new visa-free policy has boosted travel demands.

The route, connecting Wuhan Tianhe International Airport and Singapore's Changi Airport, will see three round-trip flights every week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

China Eastern Airlines first launched the air route between Wuhan and Singapore in 2012, but the red-eyed service was suspended two years later amid low demands.

In February, China and Singapore implemented a mutual 30-day visa-free travel policy, leading to a growing flight demands between the two countries.

According to the airlines, the booking rate of flights from Wuhan to Singapore has reached 80 percent recently.
