Beijing is the city of paradoxes. While one side of the city is suggestive of China’s grand and regal past the other side is a manifestation of its budding ingenuity. One can find cultural and modern China encompassed in the treasured locales of the city. Beijing is unquestionable China’s commercial gateway to the western world including the United States. Most of the important world airlines fly to the Chinese capital connecting it with other commercial, political, tourist and cultural destinations around the world.
Beijing Capital International Airport receives millions of tourists from the Americas, Europe, Asia and other corners of the world. Air China, the indigenous carrier of the country connects the city with other significant destinations. Recently the carrier commenced its nonstop flight between Beijing and Houston, making China more accessible to the U.S. Besides opening a pathway to indulge in commerce between the two cities, the airlines gives the Chinese nationals based in the multinational city of Houston to fly back home on business class tickets. Houston has long since been a hub enticing businessmen to travel for business and trade purposes. As such the new flights on this route will offer a golden chance to the Chinese nationals and non-residential to frequent their motherland. It also implies that travelers looking to fly to Beijing from Houston can do that without having to fly to other U.S. cities to board a direct flight.
Beijing is now accessible in 14 hours, much to the relief of business travelers who like to fly long hauls in the shortest possible time span. The carrier is set to use the services of B777-300ERs to operate between the two cities four times a week, initially.
