Air China grew its presence in the market from China to Thailand last week, as it commenced services on the 2,900-kilometre route from Beijing (PEK) to Chiang Mai (CNX), the largest city in the north of the country. Beginning on 7 November, the Chinese carrier offers thrice-weekly schedule on the newly launched route, which it operates using 737-800s. Air China is the only operator to link the Chinese capital and Chiang Mai with direct flights at present. Other Thai destinations in the airline’s offering are Bangkok (20 weekly flights) and Phuket (six).
