Air China is expanding its long-haul international network with the launch of two new routes, to Melbourne and Montreal.

The new direct Beijing-Melbourne service will commence on 1 June 2015, operating four times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays). Flights will depart the Chinese capital at 0105, while the return flight will leave Melbourne at 2040. Air China will deploy a two-class Airbus A330-200 aircraft on the route.

The airline currently flies between the two cities five times a week with a stop in Shanghai, but this service will now be suspended.

Then on 29 September 2015, Air China will launch a new trans-Pacific route between Beijing and Montreal. The new route will initially run three times a week using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Flights will depart Beijing every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 1350, with the return service leaving Montreal at 1620 on the same days. Air Canada will codeshare on the route.

“This new route to Canada’s second largest city will strengthen the links between China and Canada; it will provide travellers with convenient travel options in cooperation with our partner Air Canada whose extensive North American network includes many cities easily served from Montreal throughout Quebec, Atlantic Canada and the United States,” said Song Zhiyong, president & CEO of Air China.

The new Beijing-Montreal route will be the Canadian city’s first direct link to Asia.
