Air China is being busy with its Boeing 777-300ER fleet, as it prepares to launch a Beijing to Newark NJ service in the winter timetable.
The new route commences on the 26th October, with a four times a week service commencing. It will operate as below:
CA819 DEPART PEK 09:35 ARRIVE EWR 1005 CA820 DEPART EWR 12:25 ARRIVE PEK 1455+1 Commences 26th October 2015 Booked Equipment Boeing 777-300ER All services operate Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Data: Airlineroute
For those connecting in Newark, there’s plenty of time to get to the plane from an United code-share flight, whilst there is plenty of connectivity in Beijing too for those with onward connections.
Air China will contest the route with fellow Star Alliance member United Airlines. Between New York-JFK and Beijing, Air China also operates a direct service with no competition.
It’s interesting to see the route development – this route does feel like that it will be built for connecting traffic. For those who need to hit Manhattan and the nearby area – they’ll be choosing JFK I suspect.
