The chartered plane carrying the Beijing Olympic Flame landed at Sanya Fenghuang International Airport from Macao at 10:35 p.m. on Saturday.

Luo Baoming, governor of Hainan Province, received the sacred flame from the Executive Vice President of the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee Yang Shu'an.

The arrival of the Olympic Flame will ignite the enthusiasm of all the citizens and Sanya will develop the Olympic spirit and promote the internationalization process of the city, said Lu Zhiyuan, mayor of Sanya city.

The Olympic torch relay will kick off on May 4 in the Fire Phoenix Square of Phoenix Island. A total of 208 torchbearers will run through the 30.09 kilometers route that will end at the scenic spot of Tianya Haijiao, passing the Crown of Beauty Center, Haiyue Square of Sanya Gulf and Haihong Square.

After Sanya, the Olympic Flame will head to Wuzhishan, another city of Hainan Province.
