Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Wednesday, 19 March 2014

Air China is to launch nonstop flights between Shanghai and Munich on 6 June 2014, bringing the number of the European cities it serves from Shanghai up to four, with the other three cities being Frankfurt, Milan and Paris.

The four-times weekly service CA827/8 will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The outbound flight will depart Shanghai at 01:00 Beijing time to arrive in Munich at 07:10. The return flight departs Munich at 12:35 local time and arrives in Shanghai at 05:45 Beijing time the following day.

Like on other routes to Shanghai, an Airbus A330-200 will be used on the new route.

Munich is located in the central part of Europe and boasts Germany's second largest airport. Air China's new Shanghai-Munich service will allow passengers to fly nonstop from Shanghai to Munich and transit to other parts of Europe via Munich, and give an additional option to passengers from Europe who travel to and from cities like Sydney, Taipei and Fukuoka via Shanghai.

With Air China's planned introduction of two new services including Beijing-Vienna-Barcelona and Beijing-Vladivostok this year, the Shanghai-Munich service will bring the number of Air China's European routes up to 25, giving passengers easy access to 20 leading European cities. 

Currently, Air China operates from Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu to Europe.
