Air China Launches Nonstop Beijing – Lhasa Service

Air China has launched a new service between Beijing and Lhasa, serving Tibet nonstop from the Chinese capital for the first time in recent years. The state-owned carrier will fly the route daily, complementing its existing services to Chengdu, Chongqing, Kathmandu, Ngari and Qamdo.


Flight CA 4125 departs Beijing at 0805 hrs, arriving in Lhasa at 1225 hrs. The return flight, CA 4126, takes off from Lhasa Gonggar Airport at 1315 hrs to land back at Beijing Capital International Airport at 1705 hrs in the evening. Air China will fly a 128-seat Airbus A319 jet on the route, with a larger Airbus A330 aircraft rostered during peak seasons.


The airline’s decision to commence operations on the route will see it take advantage of the Beijing hub to bolster Tibet’s connectivity with the rest of the world. In addition to its own international services, Air China’s Star Alliance partners will be able to provide feeder traffic to the flights to boost tourism to the mountainous region in western China.
