A ceremony at gate E23 of Fiumicino Airport’s Terminal 3 celebrated an important return after a three-year stoppage: with the Chinese reopening to international tourism, Air China has restored the flight that connects Rome directly with Beijing, a service that has united Italy and China for more than 35 years.
The route is operated by latest-generation Airbus 350-900 long haul aircraft, configured with three classes of service: economy, premium and business. On board, the carrier offers passengers a wide range of continental menus and a rich entertainment program in Italian. The flight has four frequencies per week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, with scheduled departure from Rome Fiumicino at 8:55 p.m. and arrival in Beijing at 1 p.m. the following day.
Air China thus further expands its daily flight offerings from the capital, which also includes services to the city of Hangzhou, with three weekly flights on A330-300s.
