Air China´s maiden capital-to-capital flight from Beijing to Washington DC arrived on June 10th and was greeted with a traditional water arch salute.
For an auspicious beginning, Chinese lion dancers drummed and danced in and around the departures level of the main terminal of Washington Dulles where a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held.
The new service will be operated by Air China´s new-generation Boeing (NYSE: BA) 777-300ER featuring three-class cabins: first class (Forbidden Pavilion), business (Capital Pavilion) and economy class.
Air China is the exclusive national flag carrier of China. It is the world´s largest airline by market capitalization, according to the International Air Transport Association. Visit www.airchina.us
