Air China (LSE: AIRC) said it has begun its Beijing-to-Hawaii service as of January 20, 2014.
The new service, CA837/8, is the first nonstop air link between Beijing and Hawaii. It´s operated three times a week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday with wide-body A330-200.
The new route will meet the demand for air services of Chinese travelers to Hawaii, sparing the travelers residing in areas around Beijing the trouble of having to transfer in Shanghai, and offering an additional transfer option to travelers from Europe and the Middle East bound for Hawaii.
In addition to the Beijing-Hawaii nonstop service, other new international services that Air China will soon introduce include Beijing-Vienna-Barcelona and Shanghai-Munich. Its website is at airchina.us.
