With an endeavor to cement its foot further in the American domain, Air China is expanding its network across the US market. The airline has increased its flights to San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. Chi Zhihang, Vice President and General Manager for North America said that sky is the limit for this expansion plan.
The airline has increase Beijing-New York services to 11 return flights every week. It has increased its Los Angeles service from 11 per week to 14 and to further enhance the customer experience the airline will be using Boeing 777-300ER jet aircrafts on both the routes. Flights to San Francisco will now be operated by an all-passenger aircraft creating 20 percent more seats, which was earlier operated by a Boeing 747-400 combination aircraft.
With these additional flights the airline will not only be able to offer more air tickets to passengers, but will also be able to boost the economies of both the countries. Air China from July 2013 is all set to start non-stop flights to Houston from Beijing. Not only this, the airline for the first time in 30 years is going to add Texas as the new destination in its list soon.
