The fly takes 13 hours and cuts the travel time at least 3 hours, compared with previous flight. According to Air China, it is operating the nonstop flight CA819 that directly departs from or arrives at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), with its new-generation three-cabin B777-300ER.
This is not the first time that Air China has its own flight between Beijing and Newark, but before the direct service, passengers had to transit via Chicago, Detroit,Washington or Toronto, etc., which dishearteningly prolonged their arrival.
Here is the latest schedule of the direct (CA819) and the old type (CA978, CA7358) flights from Beijing to Newark:
|Flight Number||Flight Model||Departure||Arrival|
|CA 819 (PEK-EWR)||Boeing 777-300ER||09:50||10:05|
NOTES: All times are local. "+1" stands for next-day arrival.
Air China says, by the end of 2015, it will have nonstop services between Beijing and ten gateways in North America, including New York, Newark, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Washington Dulles, Honolulu, Vancouver, Montreal and Havana.
The new launch of direct service will greatly enrich your transport options to visit China. With perfect combination of modernity and history, Beijing is an ideal entrance to start your journey throughout China to explore the footprint left before 2000 years in Xi'an, the enchantment of dramatic change took place in Shanghai, and the natural treasure known around the word in Guilin, Chengdu and Tibet.
