Air China to Launch Beijing-Houston Service in July
Air China announced it will launch new service from Beijing to Houston, Texas. Flights will start in July and will be operated with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
The airline also announced that its flights from Beijing to Los Angeles International Airport will increase to twice daily and will also operate using the 777-300ER, and that its service from Beijing to Vancouver International Airport will run 11 times a week. The Vancouver flights will use Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
The airline recently announced that it will increase its New York-Beijing flights from seven to eleven at the end of March while simultaneously upgrading its aircraft on this route to the Boeing 777-300ER.
Air China’s 777-300ER has eight Forbidden Pavilion first-class suites, 41 Capital Pavilion fully lie-flat seats in business class, and 259 seats in economy class. All seats in the business- and first-class cabins have individual power outlets and each pair of seats in the main cabin shares a single outlet. The aircraft also has ten mood lighting variations in first and business class, designed and timed to complement the different phases of flight, from pre-arrival and boarding, to meal service and sleeping
First- and business-class passengers are met at the gate and escorted through immigration, baggage claim, and customs and brought to the arrival level, where, if reserved in advance, the airline will provide a chauffeured BMW sedan to any destination in Beijing.
