From 1 April, four weekly flights will depart from London Gatwick Airport (LGW) for Beijing. The services will restart this week.
With effect from 24 April, there will be daily flights from LGW to Beijing. Since the start of 2020, there are no longer any flights between these airports.
“We are happy to welcome Air China back to London Gatwick, offering a crucial connectivity between two of the world’s most important capital cities,” said Stephanie Wear, VP of Aviation Development at Gatwick Airport. “Gatwick is delivering a crucial service to citizens and companies throughout the Southeast by offering direct flights between London and Beijing, which is the second-largest economy in the world.
General Manager of Air China London, Jingjie Li, stated: “We are thrilled to begin our direct service from London Gatwick to Beijing. “We are ready to assist travelers flying between the UK and China as well as those traveling through our hub at Beijing Capital Airport to other destinations.”
