Air China Launches Beijing-Manila Route

On March 29, Air China will launch its first non-stop flight between Beijing and Manila.

Flights to Manila will depart from Beijing Capital Airport at 8 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and arrive at 12:55 a.m. next day. Flights to Beijing from Manila will depart at 06:30 a.m. local time on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and arrive at Beijing at 11:10 a.m. A Boeing 738 will be deployed for all flights on the Beijing-Manila route.

This new route will greatly increase the number of Filipino tourists visiting China. The Philippine Tourism Authority already has a Beijing office, and they believe that there is great potential for more Filipinos to visit China. Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou are currently the most popular destinations for Filipino tourists, who are interested in Chinese history and culture, as well as Chinese cuisine.

Air China passengers flying from the Americas and Europe can use Beijing as a hub for their flights on to the Philippines.
