Air China Begins Flights to Cuba
Flights will depart Beijing at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and arrive in Montreal at 4:20 p.m., and in Havana at 8:15 p.m. From Havana, flights are scheduled to depart at 9 a.m., arriving in Montreal at 2:30 p.m., and in Beijing at 5:30 p.m. the next day.
Air China will operate the service using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, equipped with eight lie-flat seats in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business class, and 261 seats in economy class. Seats in first class are 23” wide and have a pitch of 80”.
“The Beijing-Montreal-Havana service has filled a longstanding gap in the aviation market between China and Cuba and the Caribbean,” the airline said in a statement. It will “further promote the economic, trade, cultural, and tourism development of the two regions, and offer more convenient options for travelers.”
The route is the 29th new international route that Air China has begun this year and the airline now reaches destinations on six continents.
