BEIJING, July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Had enough of smog and PM2.5? Want urban creature comforts, pristine air, and glassy lakes? The Beijing – Geneva non-stop flights that Air China commenced on May 7 has made Geneva, the world's second most livable city, much more accessible to East Asia.
A Capital of All Nations
As the "Capital of All Nations," Geneva is where the world converges. The League of Nations, the predecessor of the United Nations, was born here. Now, Geneva is home to over 200 leading international organizations, including, among others, the United Nations European headquarters, the International Labor Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Geneva is where United Nations alone meets over 8,000 times each year and almost all important issues of the world are discussed. The city is also home to the European headquarters of such leading multinational corporations as Procter & Gamble, Serono, and Firmenich. Geneva is the world's epicurean center with its 1,100 restaurants; it is one of the world's most exciting places to eat, with alfresco restaurants and cafes strewn throughout the city where both locals and visitors can shoot the breeze and enjoy the sun over a cup of coffee or a glass of fine wine.
An Easy Journey
Before Air China commenced Beijing-Geneva rotations, Geneva had never been linked by nonstop flights with Beijing and even the entire East Asia, and thus Chinese travelers bound for Geneva had to make transfers elsewhere. Now, Air China's Beijing-Geneva route spares passengers the trouble of having to make transfers and thusly tremendously cuts the time they have to spend on the whole journey. It also offers an additional flight option to travelers to and from Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Manila.
The opening of the nonstop service Beijing-Geneva has increased the number of European destinations served by Air China to 12. It's a worthy addition to the carrier's extensive network serving Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, and other European destinations.
Air China's Beijing-Geneva Route:
The Beijing - Geneva nonstop flights, CA861/862, are offered four times a week. The outbound flight departs from Beijing at 13:30 Beijing time and arrives in Geneva at 18:25 local time; the return flight departs from Geneva at 20:25 local time and arrives in Beijing at 12:55 the following day.
