Air China adds Beijing-New York flights

In order to meet the demand for air travel between China and the United States, Air China said it will add more flights to its Beijing-New York schedule from October 26, 2015.

The new flights will serve Newark Liberty International Airport, offering an additional easy travel option for travelers between the two regions.

Newark Liberty International Airport is one of the five biggest international airports in the United States and ranks among the three main airports of New York alongside JFK Airport and La Guardia Airport. The flights to be added will make Air China the only Chinese carrier serving Newark Airport.

Up to now, Air China has been operating two daily flights from Beijing Capital International Airport to JFK Airport.

In 2015, Air China has been cementing its global route network with its hub in Beijing and expanding its footprint in the Americas. Air China put Boeing 747-8, a new member of the Boeing 747 family, into service on its Beijing-New York route at the beginning of the year, increased its Beijing-Los Angeles service to three daily flights in May and will start the Beijing-Montreal service in September.
