FUZHOU, April 26 (Xinhua) -- A high-speed rail line linking Fuzhou and Xiamen in east China's Fujian Province went into operation Monday, as the part of Shenzhen-Shanghai high-speed railway.

The railway, 275 km in length, is designed for trains traveling at a maximum speed of 250 km per hour. It will reduce the travel time between Fuzhou and Xiamen to around 90 minutes from the current 11 hours.

Three pairs of high speed passenger trains will run between Shanghai and Xiamen during the upcoming Shanghai World Expo to meet demand of the high passenger flow.
