Until recently, passengers flying from Qingdao to London needed to transfer in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou or Hong Kong. Since November 2017, with the London-Qingdao service, the first twice weekly non-stop service between the two cities, passengers have been able to save significant time in transit, eliminating the need to switch aircraft while on route as well as avoid what can often amount to many hours of wait time at the intermediary airport. With only 12 flying hours, the non-stop service provides a convenient air bridge for passengers from Qingdao and surrounding areas to London. The launch of the London-Qingdao non-stop service is part of Beijing Capital Airlines’ roadmap for ongoing global expansion as well as the accelerating of the establishment of its global network.
