Air China is planning to launch a series of new South Asian services, including flights to India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the Maldives.

On 25 October, the Chinese carrier will commence a new non-stop service between Beijing and Mumbai. Flights will operate four times a week (departing Beijing on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays) using a 301-seat, three-class Airbus A330 aircraft.

Then a day later on 26 October, Air China will launch a new route connecting Beijing with the Pakistani cities of Karachi and Islamabad. Marking the first scheduled air service between China and Pakistan by a Chinese airline, these flights will operate three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays), flying non-stop from Beijing to Islamabad, then onwards to Karachi and then direct back from Karachi to Beijing.

And completing a trio of new routes, on 27 October Air China will start flying direct from Beijing to Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. This service will operate three times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays), also using the twin-aisle A330 aircraft.

Finally in December 2015, Air China will start connecting the Maldives with Chengdu, as an extension of its existing route to Colombo. The airline commenced its Chengdu-Colombo route in February 2015, operating four times a week. And from 5 December the service will continue onwards from Colombo to Male, the capital of the Maldives. Air China serves the route using a twin-aisle Airbus A330 aircraft.
