Air China is all set to start the non-stop flights between Beijing and Copenhagen from May 30, 2018. Following the launch of the new route, passengers would be able to arrive comfortably in Andersen’s dreamlike fairy tale Kingdom in 10 hours!
With the official start of the “China-Denmark Year of Tourism”, there is more demand from the Chinese tourists to travel to Denmark; with 260,000 tourists visiting the country in 2017 makes it all the more ambitious. Following its launch, the Beijing-Copenhagen direct route will become a strong supplement to the Beijing-Stockholm route, further improving Air China’s network of routes to Northern Europe.
After the route is launched, the domestic travellers can enjoy the flight to two different North Europe destinations -Copenhagen and Stockholm. Interestingly, passengers from Denmark and Sweden will also be able to enjoy 144-hour via free transit in Beijing when travelling to a third country.
With Beijing as its hub, Air China is building a global route network for many years now. And the addition of this non-stop route between Beijing and Copenhagen is the latest development in Air China’s strategy to transform Beijing into an airport hub with a truly global reach, and improve network coverage in Europe. Air China has the widest choice of flight routes connecting Europe and China. The new Beijing-Copenhagen service will bring the total number of routes to 27, with an offering of 300 flights per week to 20 major European destinations, including London, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Rome, Moscow, Barcelona, Madrid, Zurich and Stockholm, all serviced by wide-body aircraft.
The Beijing-Copenhagen route number is CA877/8 and has four flights per week, scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. All flights use the Airbus 330-200.
