Air China to Commence Beijing-Chiang Mai Service on November 7, 2013
2013-10-14
 

Our latest destination Chiang Mai in Thailand

 

 

Air China Limited, (hereafter referred to as ※Air China§) will introduce Beijing - Chiang Mai service on November 7, 2013.  Now you can fly to Thailand and have first-hand experience of the charming streets depicted in ※Lost in Thailand§, a 2013 Chinese box-office hit.

 

Located in Thailand*s northern mountainous region, Chiang Mai is Thailand*s second largest city, and also northern Thailand*s political, economic and cultural center. This city celebrated for its Buddhist tradition boasts many historical and cultural sites and monuments. Though second only to the nation*s capital city of Bangkok in terms of modernity, this "Rose of the Northern Thailand", as it*s often called, exudes unique charms not found in bustling Bangkok. The period from October to March is best for visiting. Enjoy the many activities offered 每 whizz on a rented motorcycle, don an ethnic costume, chomp on a curry-flavored meal, enjoy a Thai massage, wander through a temple, fly a sky lantern 每  let the movie ※Lost in Thailand§ guide you.

 

The new service taps into the huge travel source market from Beijing to Chiang Mai by utilizing Air China*s hub in Beijing. It is also a valuable addition to Air China*s global route network, bolstering the connectivity between Air China*s routes to Asia Pacific and the long-haul routes to Europe and the United States. Currently there is no direct air service available between Europe/Australia/America and Chiang Mai. As a result, almost 90% of the travelers to Chiang Mai transfer in Bangkok. Relying on Air China*s extensive global route network, Air China*s Beijing - Chiang Mai direct service will further feed connecting traffic into Air China*s long-haul routes, and passengers from Europe/Australia/America transferring in Beijing will have an additional flight option bound for Chiang Mai.

 

The Beijing - Chiang Mai flights CA823/4 are operated three times a week on Monday/Thursday/Saturday using the B737-800 aircraft. The outbound flight departs from Beijing at 18:30 Beijing time and arrives in Chiang Mai at 22:40 local time. The return flight leaves Chiang Mai at 23:45 local time and arrives in Beijing at 05:00 Beijing time.
