Air China launched flights between Chengdu and London Heathrow on 2 April, with the Star Alliance member switching its three times weekly link from the Chinese city to the UK capital from Gatwick Airport. The route will be flown using A330-200s. This launch ends the two-and-a-half-year hiatus of non-stop flights between Chengdu and Heathrow, with the route having last been flown by British Airways for three years between October 2013 and October 2016.

  • Air China has switched London airports for its route between Chengdu (CTU) and the UK capital, with it moving its three times weekly link from London Gatwick (LGW) to London Heathrow (LHR). The carrier will continue to operate the city pair with the same weekly frequency using its fleet of A330-200s, while the 8,296-kilometre service will also continue to use the same flight numbers as the Gatwick operation.
