Air China to Gatwick

The London – Beijing air route is now even more competitive with Air China last week adding Gatwick to its UK operation.  The four times per week service complements the airline’s long established daily Heathrow route.  British Airways also flies daily from Heathrow to Beijing.  Air China is the second airline this year to use Gatwick for additional London flights, Korean Air recently arriving at the UK capital’s second airport.

Mr Wu Xiao Ming – General Manager UK & Ireland for Air China, said: "This is a true milestone for Air China and an ideal opportunity for the company to respond to the ever increasing demand to China and beyond."

Mr Malcolm Day – Sales & Marketing Manager UK & Ireland for Air China said: "Adding London Gatwick to our UK network now gives passengers a real choice of departure points within the South-East.  London Gatwick is well placed for us for passengers to connect to Central London as well as the City with an efficient and seamless train service."

For the 10-hour flight Gatwick will be served by a two-class Airbus A330.  The Heathrow operation is flown by a Boeing 777 which has First in addition to Business and Economy Classes. www.airchina.co.uk
