Hainan Airlines to Launch Daily Non-Stop Service

China’s Hainan Airlines recently commenced non-stop service between Chicago O’Hare airport and Beijing, making it the only certified Skytrax five-star carrier in China and the first Chinese carrier to enter the Beijing-Chicago direct market.

Hainan Airlines will fly out of Chicago twice per week on Tuesdays and Sundays. In November, subject to government approval, the airline plans to change aircraft type from an Airbus 340 to the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and in December, the non-stop frequency will be doubled to four times per week. In June 2014, the flight frequency will increase to daily.

Currently, flight 498 departs Chicago at 3:25 pm and arrives in Beijing at 7:05 pm the following day. Flight 497 will depart Beijing at 12:35 pm and arrive in Chicago at 1:25 pm the same day. Flight times are subject to change.

When the route switches to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, business class passengers will be able to enjoy 36 fully flat bed seats, plus 177 economy seats. Each seat has a 15-inch touch-screen panel and a power outlet.

Hainan Airlines flights can be booked through all travel agents, travel websites, as well as online at global.hnair.com/us or through its call center at 1-888-688-8813.

Hainan Airline will use Boeing 787 Dreamliner for its new Beijing-Chicago this November
