Air China Launches Flights Between Beijing and Brisbane, Australia

Air China has launched non-stop flights between Beijing and Brisbane, Australia.

 The airline will operate the route four times per week with Airbus 330-200 aircraft.

 Flight CA795 is scheduled to depart from Beijing every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, at 02:30 and arrive in Brisbane at 15:10. The return flight, CA796, will depart from Brisbane at 19:30 and arrive in Beijing at 04:45 the following day.

Air China's vice president Xulun Hou, said, "This new route between Beijing and Brisbane is Air China's sixth non-stop route between China and Australia. Brisbane is also Air China's third Australian destination, after Sydney and Melbourne. The establishment of this new route is part of Air China's global expansion of its route network and improvement of links between China and Australia. The launch of the route will provide a convenient transport link that should spur trade, business cooperation and tourism between Beijing and Queensland."

Leanne Coddington, CEO of Tourism and Events Queensland, added, "This is the first ever air corridor between China's capital, Beijing, and Brisbane, the capital of Queensland state. This represents a major milestone for the state of Queensland. It is expected that the new route will carry almost 170,000 new visitors to Queensland over the next four years. The route makes it easier for Chinese tourists to reach Brisbane, which is a gateway to the Gold Coast, the Whitsunday Islands and other well-known travel destinations. Chinese visitors are now only half a day away from Queensland's mild climate, pristine beaches and jaw-dropping Great Barrier Reef."

In recent years, Air China has been expanding its global route network, and now operates flights out of four major hubs in Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. It has also increased its route offering between China and Australia. At present, Air China operates non-stop routes from Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu to Sydney and Melbourne, handling over 40 weekly passenger flights between China and Australia.

 Air China is a member of Star Alliance.
