Vienna Airport welcomes a new connection to Asia starting on 5 May 2014: This morning at 6.10 am, the first A330-300 flight by Air China from Peking landed in Vienna.
Feng Run´e Vice President of Air China says: “Twenty-two years ago, Air China used to have flights to Vienna. Today, the long history of Europe, the growing of the European Union and the irresistible charm of Vienna bring us back. I believe that the re-union of Air China and Vienna will make our partnership tighter, stronger and more fruitful.”
Air China will operate four weekly flights on the Peking – Vienna – Barcelona route. Every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, the aircraft will depart from Peking at 2.10 am and land in Vienna at 6.10 am. At 7.30 am, the flight continues to Barcelona, with landing scheduled for 9.25 am. In the return direction, the machine will depart from Barcelona at 11.25 am and land in Vienna at 13.25 pm. The take-off from Vienna for Peking is scheduled for 2.55 pm, where the flight will land at 5.55 am the next morning.
