Air China to start Beijing-Chiang Mai flights.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2013 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

PRC flag carrier Air China said it will introduce a Beijing-to-Chiang Mai service on November 7.

Located in Thailand's northern mountainous region, Chiang Mai is Thailand's second largest city and also northern Thailand's political, economic and cultural centre.

The city is second only to the nation's capital city of Bangkok in terms of modernity. The period from October to March is best for travel, Air China said.

Air China said that its new service taps into the huge travel source market from Beijing to Chiang Mai by utilising Air China's hub in Beijing. For the time being, no direct air services are available between Europe/Australia/America and Chiang Mai.

As a result, almost 90% of the travelers to Chiang Mai have to 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, making travel between Europe/ Australia/America and Chiang Mai via Beijing a reality.

The Beijing - Chiang Mai flights, CA823/4, are operated three times a week on Monday/Thursday/Saturday with the Boeing (NYSE: BA) 737-800.
