Air China said it will start Beijing-Vienna-Barcelona service on May 5, 2014, giving travelers an additional easy access to the “Capital of Music” and the “Flower of Europe.”
The four-times weekly service CA841/2 will be offered on Monday/Thursday/Friday/Sunday.
For a long time, no nonstop flights have been offered to link East Asia and Barcelona, and there have been very few flights between Beijing and Vienna. With the increasingly close exchanges between China and Europe in recent years, demand for air travel is growing rapidly.
As a member carrier of the Star Alliance, the world´s largest airline network, Air China has been actively expanding its European schedule. Currently, Air China offers more than 100 flights per week between China and Europe, serving such major European cities as London, Paris, Frankfurt, Rome, Moscow and Madrid.
