The four weekly Beijing – Mumbai flights operate on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The seven-hour flights take off from Beijing at 7:40pm local time and land in Mumbai at 1am the next day. The return service leaves India at 2:30am Mumbai time and touches down in Beijing at 11:20am.

Air China’s route from Beijing to Mumbai is a significant part in the effort to build a Bangladesh – China – India – Myanmar Corridor. This service means Air China now offers eight weekly nonstop flights between China and India and will also bring the total number of Asia-Pacific destinations served by the Chinese carrier to 17.
