Air China To Connect Athens With Beijing

Air China will launch a new service from Athens to Beijing, starting from November 28, 2007.

The service is conducted by Boeing 767 twice a week via Dubai. Every Wednesdays and Sundays, the outbound flight (CA943) departs from Beijing at 20:40, arriving in Athens at 05:50 the following day and includes a one and a half hour stop in Dubai. The return flight (CA944) will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays, departs from Athens at 9:30 a.m., stops in Dubai for one hour and forty minutes and arrives in Beijing the following day at 05:20 (all local times).

"With the new service, Air China will bring significant convenience to passengers between China and Greece. It will also facilitate the commercial, political and cultural communications of the two countries," said Senior Vice President of Air China Zhang Lan. "The launch of the new service will allow Chinese passengers fast and efficient access to Athens, a country integrating historical culture and natural beautiful sightseeing. Likewise, it will build a path for passengers in Greece and South Europe to come to watch the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games."

Air China is the most frequent airline between Europe and China in terms of the total number of Sino-European flights. With its European headquarters based in Frankfurt, Air China serves Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Stockholm, Moscow and Madrid with non-stop service to Beijing or Shanghai offering 130 weekly flights.
