With direct flights from Frankfurt to Chengdu and Shenzhen, Air China offers the fastest connections to the southern and south-western areas of China.
Alongside Beijing and Shanghai, Chengdu in Sichuan Province is the third major hub in Air China’s route network. Excellent transfer arrangements to the southern metropolis of Guangzhou or to more westerly destinations such as Kunming, the more north-westerly city of Urumqi and even further west to Lhasa considerably reduce travel time compared with transfer connections via Beijing or Shanghai. Chengdu also serves as an important regional and international hub with connections to the regional destinations of Hong Kong and Taipei, but also to international destinations such as Singapore, Bangalore, Kathmandu or Karachi.
The metropolis of Shenzhen is located in the very south of the country, not far from Hong Kong. From Shenzhen Airport, Hong Kong can be reached by bus in just 30 minutes. In addition to its attractive geographical proximity to other important cities in southern China, especially the urban centres of the Pearl River Delta around the metropolis of Guangzhou, Shenzhen offers excellent transfer arrangements to all regions of China as well as to South-east Asian destinations, such as Thailand or Singapore.
Air China also maintains regular direct flights from Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf to the Beijing and Shanghai hubs. Thanks to the dense route network, there is a wide range of transfer options to a large number of destinations throughout Asia and as far away as Australia and New Zealand.
Air China operates the most modern aircraft on all its routes, with interiors that have been completely refurbished to the highest standard. First and Business Class lie-flat seats guarantee a relaxed journey. On all Air China long-haul routes, all seats in all service classes are equipped with a wide-ranging individual entertainment programme.
