Travelling with Air China will be even simpler and more relaxed. The visa regulations for Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai, destinations served by Air China direct from Germany with connecting flights to a third country or another region (Taiwan, Hong Kong or Macao), have now been significantly improved.
Travellers who are connecting one of the Air China flights Frankfurt–Beijing, Frankfurt–Shanghai, Munich–Beijing, Munich–Shanghai or Düsseldorf–Beijing, with an international or regional connecting flight, can enjoy a visa-free stay of up to 144 hours in Beijing or Shanghai. For international transit from Frankfurt to Chengdu, simplified regulations also now apply: no visa is required for a stay of up to 72 hours.
Thanks to its extensive and balanced route network, Air China offers many transfer options not only for other destinations in China but also for regional destinations such as Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan. Travellers can reach the most important cities in Asia just as quickly and comfortably by travelling via China. Central business destinations such as Tokyo, Seoul or even Singapore can be reached conveniently with Air China.
The most up-to-date aircraft with completely redesigned cabin interiors are being operated on all long-haul connections. Fully flat seats in Business Class guarantee a relaxed journey. And the personal entertainment programme in both Business and Economy Class brings variety to the already short travel time.
