Chinese carrier Juneyao Airlines will receive an Airbus A321 and two A320 aircraft in the coming months, where they will be deployed on the airline's new services.

Juneyao says it plans to have the two A320s from the middle of June and expects the A321 in early July. Flightglobal's Ascend Online Fleets database, however, suggests it will receive an A320 and an A321 in July, while the second A320 will be delivered in October.

All three aircraft are on lease from GE Capital Aviation Services.

With the fleet additions, Juneyao will launch five new domestic services, resume two routes and increase its frequencies on four international services, all of which will begin from July.

The airline will start a thrice weekly Hangzhou-Dalian-Hailar service. It will also introduce daily Shanghai Pudong-Xining, Shanghai Pudong-Qingdao-Changbaishan, Shanghai Pudong-Changsha-Lijiang and Beihai-Shenzhen services.

It will also resume thrice weekly Shanghai Pudong-Hohhot and 11 times weekly Shanghai Pudong-Hailar services.

Internationally, Juneyao will add daily flights on the Shanghai Pudong-Phuket, Shanghai Pudong-Bangkok and Shanghai Pudong-Jeju routes. An additional six weekly frequencies on Shanghai Pudong-Chiang Mai route will also be introduced.

Innovata schedules show that Juneyao competes with China Eastern Airlines on routes from Shanghai Pudong to Bangkok and Jeju. It is the only operator on the Shanghai Pudong-Chiang Mai route.

Information from the Ascend Online Fleets database show that Juneyao operates 31 Airbus A320 aircraft.
