Air China has introduced its new Airbus A350-900, operating on its London Heathrow to Beijing route. The new aircraft will improve the in-flight experience for passengers across business, premium economy and economy classes, and has allowed Air China to increase the number of flights between London and Beijing to three a day, further improving the connection between the UK and China.

The new Airbus A350 has 312 seats within the aircraft, offering a new seating layout with 32 seats in business class, 24 in premium economy and 256 seats in economy class. The cabin design has created more space for window seat passengers, and the new aircraft’s advanced air management system can adjust the cabin temperature in real time and purify circulating air every two to three minutes, creating a more comfortable flight experience for passengers.

Jingjie Li, General Manager of Air China UK office, says: “We are very excited to introduce the new Airbus A350 model to our UK to China fleet. Not only does the introduction of this new aircraft give us the opportunity to increase our daily flights between London and Beijing to triple daily, but also offer our passengers a new and improved in-flight experience, maximizing their comfort and enjoyment of flying with Air China. We are always looking for ways to improve this very important flight route and we are looking forward to seeing how our passengers will benefit from the new aircrafts.” Find out more at
