Air China announced that its inaugural Beijing-Warsaw flight will take off on September 21 at a press conference held in Beijing on September 20, 2016.
The Beijing – Warsaw route is Air China’s second nonstop long-haul international service linking China to Central and Eastern Europe following the introduction of the carrier’s Minsk – Beijing – Budapest nonstop route. It not only expands Air China’s global route network with its hub in Beijing, but also is a worthy addition to its route network linking China to Central and Eastern Europe.
At present, Air China is the largest carrier between China and Europe, offering nearly 200 flights per week. The Beijing – Warsaw service brings the number of Air China’s routes between China and Europe up to 24, serving 19 important European cities including London, Paris, Munich, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Vienna, Geneva, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome and Milan.
The flights, CA737/8, are operated four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The outbound flight departs from Beijing at 02:30 and arrives in Warsaw at 06:20. The return flight departs from Warsaw at 14:10 and arrives in Beijing at 04:30 the following day. Airbus 330-200 is operated on the route, featuring full-flat seats in Business Class and personal AVOD in all classes of service.
