There is good news for us here in Montreal! Air China announced that it will start a direct flight from Montreal to Beijing!
Per Airline Route, the flight details will be the following:
CA879 PEK1300 – 1350YUL 77W 257
CA880 YUL1620 – 1800+1PEK 77W 257
It will be operating 3 times a week by a Boeing 777-300ER.
This is awesome news! It will be the only scheduled fight from Montreal to Asia. It will give us one more option to get to Asia instead of having to transit somewhere in Canada, in the US, in Europe or in Qatar.
Air China is a member of Star Alliance, so you will be able to accumulate Aeroplan miles on this flight!
Are you excited by that new flight? I am! Even if I end up not flying it, it will make for some nice plane spotting!
