British Airways restarts Beijing flights
British Airways has restarted Beijing flights from London after a hiatus of more than three years.
It was BA’s first passenger flight between the two cities since January 2020.
The airline remains the only British carrier operating a direct service between Beijing and the UK.
Beijing flights will operate four-times-a-week to Daxing Airport.
British Airways and joint business partner China Southern both operate from Daxing, giving customers easier connectivity between the UK and China.
The partnership also offers a wider choice of onward flights and added frequent flyer benefits.
Louise Street, British Airways’ Director of Worldwide Airports said: “The restart of one of our most important routes is a long-awaited moment for all of us.”
“Following the successful resumption of flights to Shanghai, we’re excited to be back in Beijing too.”
Customers can now enjoy the airline’s newly designed Club Suite (business class) cabin.
It offers 40% more storage, and 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens.
In October 2019, British Airways was the first international flag carrier to offer Beijing flights to the newly opened Daxing Airport.
The airport has a high-speed rail link into the city.
