Air China to Connect Athens With Beijing

September 17, 2007, the Chinese flag carrier Air China is to launch new service from Athens to Beijing, starting from November 28th 2007. The new route will connect the capitals of the two countries: Greece and China.

The service is conducted by Boeing 767 twice a week via Dubai. Every Wednesdays and Sundays, the outbound flight (CA943) departs from Beijing at 8:40 p.m., arriving in Athens at 5:50 a.m. the following day including a stop in Dubai. The return flight (CA944) will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays, departs from Athens at 9:30 a.m., stops also in Dubai and arrives in Beijing the following day at 5:20 a.m. (all local times).

Finally, it comes true! There had been several articles in the Greek press in the last year but it was all rumours,speculations, plans etc!
I m not surprised with the choice of 763! There is business traffic between the 2 countries, the amount of Chinese visitors to ATH grows up every year and there is also rising Chinese community in Athens. But at this stage i dont think that any larger equipment would justify the current demand.
DXB as a stopover point does make sense geographically, however, in terms of competition there is already a tough one on the ATH-DXB route as both OA (4 times weekly ) and EK (daily) serve the route.
