Air China will offer direct links between its base in Beijing and Mumbai from late October.
The new route will complement the existing Beijing–Delhi service, which it currently operates four-times weekly. Effective from October 25, Air China will also serve Beijing–Mumbai four-times a week.
The launch of Bejing–Mumbai will coincide with the cancellation of the carrier’s existing Chengdu–Mumbai service, which it serves thrice weekly.
Flight CA889 departs Beijing Capital International Airport on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1940 and arrives in Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at 0100 the following day.
Meanwhile, the return leg sees flight CA890 take off from Mumbai at 0230 and touch back down in Beijing at 1120. The morning arrival of the flight means that passengers will benefit from having a near full day in the Chinese capital.
Flights are operated by the A330-300, which features a three-class configuration, with 30 seats in business, 16 in premium economy and 255 in economy.
