Air China connects to Cuba via Canada

Air China connects to Cuba via Canada

Air China celebrated the launch of flights to Havana in Cuba on 27
December at Montreal Airport in Canada. The thrice-weekly Beijing to
Havana service, flown using 777-300ERs, operates via the Star Alliance’s
existing service to Montreal.

Air China, on 27 December, began serving Cuba for the first time, when
the Star Alliance carrier commenced thrice-weekly flights between
Beijing (PEK) and Havana (HAV). The 13,061-kilometre service will
operate via Montreal in Canada and will be flown by the airline’s
777-300ERs. Flights depart the Chinese capital on Tuesdays, Fridays and
Sundays. The launch ceremony in Beijing was attended by representatives
from the Cuban Embassy in China, Beijing Capital International Airport
and Air China. Air China Vice Chairman Ms. Wang Yinxiang said in her
speech that in recent years, the economic and trade ties between China
and Cuba have become increasingly closer. The Beijing – Montreal –
Havana service has filled a longstanding gap in the aviation market
between China and Cuba and the Caribbean, and will further promote the
economic, trade, cultural and tourism development of the two regions,
and offer more convenient options for travellers. Air China now serves
10 destinations in the Americas; Havana, Hawaii, Houston, Los Angeles,
Montreal, New York (JFK and Newark), San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Vancouver
and Washington.
