Air China announces Mumbai-Beijing

Air China has officially announced that it shall be launching new 4 weekly nonstop flights from its Beijing hub to Mumbai, India effective 25OCT15. All flights shall be flown using their new A333s with the below mentioned schedule:


CA 889 Dep PEK 1940 Arr BOM 0100+1
CA 890 Dep BOM 0230 Arr PEK 1120

CA's A333s seat 301 pax in a 3 class configuration i.e. 30J + 16W + 255Y.


FYI in 2014, the O&D demand between PEK and BOM was 18,000 pax only hence this means the flight will be very reliant on connecting traffic to other East Asian cities via PEK along with USA/CAN (West Coast).

Major India-China markets in 2014 were as follows:

CAN-DEL-CAN...115,000 pax
PVG-DEL-PVG...89,000 pax
PEK-DEL-PEK...70,000 pax
PVG-BOM-PVG...65,000 pax
PVG-BLR-PVG...30,000 pax
PVG-MAA-PVG...19,000 pax
