China Eastern will fly direct between Nanjing and Sydney three times a week from 21 December.
Sydney Airport chief executive officer Kerrie Mather said China Eastern would fly an A330-300 service between Sydney and Nanjing three times a week then onwards to Beijing, taking its total weekly services from Sydney to 12.
"We're delighted to announce this new route from one of our fastest growing carriers. Nanjing adds to Sydney Airport's already significant network of major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong."
Sydney Airport will release a full Chinese version of its popular iPhone app in time for Christmas. The app will automatically display the Chinese or the English version, depending on user settings.
"Sydney Airport's iPhone app is used more than 30,000 times a week and we hope that our Chinese passengers also use the app to check flight arrivals and departures and other airport information," Ms Mather said.
"Dynamic Chinese way-finding signage will also be installed in the arrivals section of the international terminal in time for Christmas."
