Air China, a significant airline friend and partner for Athens, as of this winter will increase its direct services between Athens and Beijing from two to three per week in order to meet high travel demand.

The announcement was made during a recent Press event co-organised on the occasion of the carrier’s second anniversary since the launch of direct flights between the two cities in Sep201.
