Starting from October 29, 2023 (GMT+8), Air China has initiated its winter and spring flight schedule. Based on the characteristics of flight operations in the two seasons, to cater to passengers' specific travel needs, Air China is optimizing its capacity, leveraging its hub network, and enhancing flight quality in terms of frequency and departure times.
