BEIJING--4 Sep--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

On 26 September 2017, Air China will launch a new non-stop route between Beijing and Jakarta. The current route stops in Xiamen, with a total flight time of 9.5 hours. However, the new non-stop route, operated by Airbus A330-300 aircraft, will reduce the journey time to just 7 hours. This will offer passengers a faster, far comfier way to reach the sights and sounds of Jakarta.

Jakarta is the capital and largest city of Indonesia. Located on the north-west coast of Java, it is a famous port and the most populous city in Southeast Asia. Since the 15th century, Indonesia has been a vital crossroads between the Indian and Pacific oceans, and an important hub for commercial and cultural exchange between East and West. In the days of the old maritime Silk Road, a steady procession of boats would call here to fill up with wares such as Chinese silk, porcelain and Indonesian spices, before setting sail for their final destination.

Official figures from Indonesia show that over 1.4 million Chinese tourists visited Indonesia in 2016. This is an increase of nearly 14% over the previous year, making China the largest source country for inbound tourism. From autumn this year, Air China passengers will be able to travel non-stop to Jakarta, where they can relax and unwind from Beijing's frantic pace of living, appreciate Indonesia's unique history and culture and experience the dynamism of Southeast Asia. Visitors can find inner peace as they breathe in the coconut-scented sea air and absorb the breathtaking sights around them.

In recent years, Air China has launched new routes between Beijing and Mumbai, Colombo, Islamabad, Karachi and other Silk Road destinations. Last year, Air China also rolled out new connections between Hangzhou and Surat Thani, and Chongqing and Nha Trang. The addition of this non-stop route between Beijing and Jakarta is the latest development in Air China's strategy to transform Beijing into an airport hub with a truly global reach, and improve network coverage in the Asia Pacific. In the future, Air China will continue to develop convenient, high-quality and affordable travel products to help tourists explore Indonesia.
