Air China brings China and Spain closer together to boost tourism

Published on : Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Air China has helped facilitate exchanges between the two countries and is ready to do more, said Han Pengyu, head of Air China in Spain.



As China’s flag carrier for civil aviation, Air China opened its Beijing-Madrid-Sao Paolo air route in December, 2006, the first direct flight route linking China and Spain. It was also the company’s first direct flight crossing three continents.



Han told that as China-Spain ties have been booming in all areas, the company is ready to do more based on the demands of the Spanish market. The company may use more advanced planes to fly its Spanish routes and will increase passenger volume, said Han. Apart from Beijing-Madrid direct route, Air China has also opened direct routes linking Beijing and Barcelona, as well as Shanghai and Barcelona.



Since 2015, over 620,000 passengers have flown with Air China’s Spanish routes, according to Han.



In recent years, Air China has strived to improve its quality of service for a better passenger experience. In addition, the company has put the Boeing 787-9 on the route, enabling a shorter flying time and more comfortable flight experience.



In 2010, Air China received Spain’s highest tourism industry award, the “Plaque for Tourist Merit.” It is the first time that the Spanish government gave a Chinese airline the award to honor its contributions to promoting tourism in Spain.
