Air China has confirmed plans to launch flights connecting Beijing and Mumbai.

The new direct service will commence on 25 October 2015, operating four times a week. Flights will depart the Chinese capital every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 1940, arriving in Mumbai at 0100 the following day. The return flight will then leave at 0230, arriving back in Beijing at 1120.

The route will be operated using a 301-seat Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 30 seats in business class, 16 in premium economy and 255 in economy.

Air China said the Mumbai route formed part of its “One Belt, One Road” initiative, which is designed to expand operations to emerging markets. This strategy has already seen the launch of the Beijing-Minsk-Budapest in the first half of the year, and will be followed by new services from Beijing to Islamabad and Karachi, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, Johannesburg and Addis Ababa in the coming months.

The new route will complement Air China’s existing Beijing-Delhi service, which also operates four times a week.
