Air China will launch flights between Beijing
and Panama City via Houston on 5 April 2018.
The Beijing-Houston-Panama City route will be
operated with Boeing 777-300 ER (Extended Range) wide-body
The First and Business Class cabins are equipped with
fully-reclinable seats and a central bar area, while passengers in
all travel classes have their own in-flight entertainment system
and power sockets. The aircraft also feature wheelchair-accessible
lavatories and dynamic LED mood lighting.
In June 2017, China and Panama signed the Joint
Communique on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations Between
the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Panama. This
formal establishment of diplomatic relations carries forth a
relationship that dates back more than 160 years into a new era.
China is Panama's second largest trading
partner and the second largest user of the Panama Canal, while
Panama is China's largest trading partner in Central America. In
2017, bilateral trade amounted to nearly US $6.7 billion, while
two-way passenger traffic totalled nearly 40,000, growing at an
annual rate of almost 30%.
In recent years, Air China has been working to
develop Beijing into a major airport hub with a truly global
reach. Air China's route network already spans all six inhabited
continents, and the launch of the Beijing-Houston-Panama City
route marks an important milestone in its efforts to expand
coverage in the Americas.
Air China currently operates over 200
weekly flights to 12 destinations in the Americas, including New
York (Newark Airport and JFK Airport), Washington, D.C., Los
Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Hawaii, Vancouver, Montreal,
Havana and Sao Paulo.
