Airlines gear up for more Vancouver-Beijing flights.

Airlines gear up for more Vancouver-Beijing flights.

Now that the Chinese government has finally granted Canada Approved Destination Status, the goal is to increase at least a 50-per-cent increase in the number of Chinese visitors by 2015.

Starting in June 2010, Air China will add three more Vancouver-Beijing flights per week, going from seven to 10. It’s a doubling in flights that puts Air China up there to match Cathay Pacific Airways service from Vancouver to Hong Kong. Cathay now flies twice daily, connecting to more than 16 cities in mainland China via its sister airline, Dragonair. With return airfares starting at only CAD $730.00*

At the moment Air China’s flights from Vancouver to Beijing leave in the afternoon, but the airline is trying to schedule all its new flights as midnight departures, which are the most convenient for Pacific-crossing business travellers. This allows a full day’s work in Vancouver enabling one to jump on board, sleep and arrive in Asia in time for the morning’s first coffee break and easily catch a connecting flight to elsewhere in China or Southeast Asia.
