Air China will launch a new nonstop service between Beijing and Honolulu, Hawaii on January 21, 2014. The new service will make Air China the first carrier operating nonstop links between Beijing and Hawaii, and will make Hawaii the carrier’s 6th destination in North America in addition to New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and Vancouver.
Flights will depart Beijing Capital International Airport at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and will arrive at Honolulu International Airport in Hawaii at 6:25 p.m. one day earlier due to the crossing of the international dateline. Flights from Hawaii to Beijing will depart at 9:55 p.m., also on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and arrive at 5:20, two days later.
The new route will offer additional options for travel to China from or via the West Coast of the U.S. and Canada.
