Air China Increases Frequency To San Francisco
Air China Increases Frequency To San Francisco

Air China will increase its current frequency on the Beijing-to-San Francisco route to daily service, starting April 1, 2007.

The airline says that demand for its service on the route has prompted the increase in capacity. With this frequency increase, Air China will be the only Chinese carrier offering daily nonstop service to the United States at its two top gateway markets: San Francisco and Los Angeles. Air China also serves New York and Vancouver with nonstop service to Beijing.

"San Francisco, as our third daily route to the U.S., will bring added convenience and service to both business and tourism passengers traveling to China," said Zhang Lan, Senior Vice President of Air China. "As well, adding to our focus on the West Coast, the daily services at both San Francisco and L.A. will permit greater access from Mid-West America. These connecting passengers are a group we are eager to conveniently accommodate aboard Air China."

The two new flights from San Francisco will be scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays. Flight CA 985 will depart Beijing at 3:30 PM, arriving in San Francisco at 12:10 PM each day. Flight CA986 will depart San Francisco at 2:20 PM, arriving the next afternoon in Beijing at 5:05 PM.

As the only flag carrier of China, Air China serves 74 domestic and 38 international cities with an extensive network from its Beijing hub, conveniently linking passengers between China and destinations around the world.
