    fly or fly to

    A: Are you going to Hong Kong tomorrow?B: No. Im flying Shanghai.(from an English textbook)
    I wonder if a
    to should be placed before Shanghai.
    In my Oxford dictionary, I read a phrase to fly the Atlantic. The dictionary says fly here means to travel over an ocean or area of land in an aircraft.Thanks.

    Re: fly or fly to

    There should be a "to" before "Shanghai".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
