Sydney will gain an extra four weekly non-stop flights to Beijing over the busy summer and early autumn travel period with Star Alliance member Air China ramping up services from the Chinese capital.
From November 16 2015 through March 26 2016, CA194 flies to Beijing on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays – leaving the gate at 3pm in Sydney and arriving in Beijing at 11:50pm that evening.
In reverse, CA193 leaves Beijing at 10:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, touching down in Australia at 1:10pm the following day.
An Air China spokesperson confirmed the addition of these new seasonal flights with Australian Business Traveller, which can now be booked via the Air China website:
Operated by a twin-aisle Airbus A330, business class passengers can rest in fully-flat beds stretching for 190cm from tip to tail…
… while travellers in economy each have a personal, on-demand seatback entertainment system and 32 inches of space (‘pitch’) from headrest to headrest.
Air China’s existing daily flights between Sydney and Beijing (CA174/173) continue to run throughout this period, as do the airline’s three-times-weekly Sydney-Shanghai services.
