BEIJING- Starting mid-January 2024, Air China (CA) intends to recommence its Shanghai Pu Dong to Munich route, with an initial schedule of three weekly flights utilizing the Airbus A350-900XWB aircraft.
According to Flight Connections, As of November 2023, Air China, a member of the Star Alliance, operates flights to 132 domestic destinations and 60 international destinations across 39 countries.
Air China Resumes Flights To Munich
The Star Alliance carrier is set to commence operations on this route on January 17, 2024.
Flight CA827 departs from Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) at 01:30 and arrives in Munich (MUC) at 06:25 on certain days, using an Airbus A350-900 aircraft. The flight operates on days 3, 5, and 7.
Flight CA828 departs from Munich (MUC) at 12:20 and arrives at Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) at 06:20 the following day on the same aircraft type. This flight also operates on days 3, 5, and 7.
Air China Likely to Start Los Angeles Flights
Given the current limitations on flights between the U.S. and China, this strategic move allows them to serve New York without significantly impacting their Los Angeles service, reported Viewfromthewing.
While Air China has a partnership with United Airlines (UA), they aim to focus on offering one-stop same-aircraft connections rather than working closely with United at Newark, which is not the same as New York JFK.
It’s important to note that Air China will only carry their own connecting passengers on the New York JFK to Los Angeles flight. It won’t be possible to purchase a ticket solely for that flight, and this service will operate in one direction only, from Los Angeles to New York.
