Air China announced that its Beijing-Stockholm service will go from five flights per week to daily starting on June 1.  The airline will operate the flights with an Airbus A330-300, which features lie-flat seats in business class as well as a premium economy section.

The outbound flight will depart Beijing at 1:50 p.m. and the return flight will leave Stockholm at 7:10 p.m.

Air China also said it will increase its flights to London Heathrow to daily starting May 15.  At that time, Air China will begin to operate the London flights with a Boeing 777-300ER.

The 777-300ER is the world’s largest long-range twin-engine jetliner, and has a wider cabin than any competing aircraft.  Air China’s 777s have eight luxury suites in first class, 41 lie-flat seats in business class, and 259 seats in economy class (each with individual TV screens).

Air China is the flag carrier of the People’s Republic of China and was founded in 1988. It has its main hub at Beijing Capital International Airport and it is the world’s tenth largest airport in terms of fleet size.
