Air China to restart Budapest-Beijing direct flights
Air China is scheduled to relaunch direct flights between Budapest and Beijing as of May 1, with Airbus A330 planes flying between the capitals four times a week, the airline said at an event in Beijing today.
The flights from Beijing will make a short stop in Minsk, Belarus, but there will be no stopover on the return flight from Budapest, the airline said.
According to Hungarian news agency MTI, Hungarian ambassador Cecília Szilas said the number of Chinese visitors to Hungary for business and tourism rose 19% in 2014 alone and that number is estimated to double in the next five years.
