Air China to begin nonstop Melbourne-Shenzhen

May 15, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Air China will begin a non-stop service between Melbourne and Shenzhen on 20 June 2017.

The service CA767/768 will operate three times a week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

Air China is the only official carrier of the People’s Republic of China. It currently operates a three-times-weekly service from Melbourne to Beijing and a four-times-weekly service between Melbourne and Shanghai.

The new direct route will be operated by Airbus A330-200 aircraft with 30 lie-flat bed business class seats and 207 economy class seats with a generous seat pitch of 32 inches.

Shenzhen, the fourth biggest city in China, is one of the country’s main economic centres. In 2012, Shenzhen was placed by UK-based The Economist news magazine at number two in a “most competitive cities in the globe” list. Next to Hong Kong, Shenzhen has the largest advanced manufacturing base in China and it’s a high technology base.

At last count (March 2017) Air China had a fleet of 590 passenger aircraft and freighters, mainly Boeing and Airbus. It operates 395 routes: 102 international routes, 14 regional routes and 279 domestic routes.
