London, June 2:  A new line of Air Silk Road connectivity between Chinese capital, Beijing, and world’s financial capital, London, has been launched by Air China as it added a direct route between the Beijing Capital Airport and London Gatwick Airport, UK, on Saturday.

A ceremony for this new route of Air Silk Road connectivity between Beijing and London was held Saturday at London Gatwick Airport.

The flight number of Air China for this route is CA851/2, with one flight per day.

“As the second-largest airport in the UK, the increased flights on the London-Beijing route will further promote exchanges and cooperation between China and the UK in trade and tourism, Jonathan Pollard, chief commercial officer of London Gatwick Airport, said to Xinhua at the airport.

“I think today’s new service is a testament to the growth that we’re seeing on the UK and China markets,” Jonathan further added.

Nearly 250 passengers took the direct flight to Beijing on Saturday. For many, it was their first trip to China since the pandemic, traveling for family visits, vacations, and business trips, Air China said in a press release handed to Xinhua on Sunday.
