Air China chooses Malpensa to fly with the airbus a350

Publication Date: 24/10/2018

Air China has chosen Milan Malpensa as its first international destination connected by the Airbus A350 versoBeijing.

La novità è stata celebrata con un evento speciale in aeroporto lo scorso 15 ottobre con taglio del nastro, una torta dedicata al nuovo A350 e il tradizionale saluto al velivolo prima del decollo con il water cannon. L’evento ha visto la partecipazione del management di SEA e di Air China e la presenza del Console Generale della Cina a Milano per un saluto istituzionale.

Air China’s decision to change aircraft is due to the 17% year-on-year increase in passenger traffic between Milan and China. The new aircraft has 312 seats, 75 more than the A330-200 previously used by the company to serve the route. The increased number of seats will lead to a 32% increase in capacity on the Milan-Beijing route. Air China’s A350 is split into three classes: its Business Class features 32 flat bed seats and high-end services, while Premium Economy contains 24 seats and Economy Class contains 256 seats.
