Air China launches three times weekly service from Beijing to Melbourne
Air China service between Beijing and Melbourne
Air China has launched a three times weekly service between Beijing and Melbourne. Melbourne Airport has celebrated the Year of the Rabbit with the return of several major Chinese airlines, including China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, and Beijing Capital Airlines.
Welcoming the inaugural Air China service from Beijing, Melbourne Airport presented Peter Han, General Manager, Air China, and Alex Luo, Station Manager, Air China, with a ceremonial scroll to bring good fortune.
“It’s so exciting to see China’s major carriers returning to Melbourne and the growth in the airport workforce that comes with that,” said Jim Parashos, Chief of Aviation, Melbourne Airport. “These services will help bring hundreds of mainland Chinese tourists, business leaders and students into Victoria every day, so the employment and economic benefits go much further than Melbourne Airport. To have so many carriers return so quickly shows the confidence China’s airlines have in Victoria and the importance they place on Melbourne in particular. By March we’re hopeful of being at almost 50% of pre-pandemic capacity from mainland China, which while very welcome, also underscores how much further we have to go.”
