Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines carried out the comeback flight between Beijing and Berlin on Friday. From now on there will be a flight connection between the two cities once a week.
While flying non-stop from the People's Republic of China, the return flight requires a stopover at Dalian Zhoushuizi Airport. The background for the procedure are the Chinese infection protection requirements. The flights are usually carried out with long-haul Airbus A330 aircraft.
The aircraft has 260 economy class seats and 32 business class seats. Depending on the booking class, the airline offers its guests the use of the priority lane and access to the Tempelhof lounge at BER.
Before the Corona break, Hainan Airlines had connected Beijing and the former Berlin-Tegel airport from September 2008 to March 2020. With the resumption of direct scheduled services to Beijing, travel between the two capitals will be made significantly easier. The visa requirement and requirements for infection protection also apply to entry into the People's Republic of China.
