Air China said it will start Beijing – Montreal – Havana service on December 27, 2015, a southward extension to Havana of the carrier´s Beijing – Montreal service already started on September 29.
With the extension, passengers make a short stopover in Montreal and then continue their journey to the “Jewel of the Caribbean” for its romantic Latin American charms.
The new service will be the first of the kind between China and Cuba, making it much easier to travel between China and other Asian regions and Cuba, and offering an easy option to travelers in Cuba and the Caribbean who can fly on Air China to Beijing and then connect to other parts of the world.
The Beijing – Montreal – Havana service represents a tangible move by Air China to expand its footprint in the Central and South American regions. In 2015, Air China has been cementing its global route network with its hub in Beijing and the expansion of its presence in the Americas. The new service will bring the number of destinations in the Americas that Air China serves up to 10, including New York (JFK, Newark), Washington, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Vancouver, Montreal, Hawaii, Sao Paulo and Havana.
