British Airways is back In Beijing after 3 Years


The airline has made a return to the Chinese capital following the pandemic-driven hiatus

Following a three-year hiatus, British Airways has resumed direct services between London and China’s capital city with a four-times-per-week service.


British Airways has completed its first flight between London and Beijing in over three years. Direct services by the carrier were suspended in January 2020 due to the pandemic. However, services finally resumed yesterday with the flight between London Heathrow Airport (LHR) and Beijing’s Daxing Airport (PKX).


The resumption of services between the two cities restores the airline’s position as the only British carrier operating a direct service between Beijing and the UK. British Airways started operating services between London and Beijing almost 43 years ago, having originally commenced services between the two cities in November 1980.


The resumption of direct flights between London and Beijing will see services operate four times a week between the two cities, departing London on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays as flight number BA89. The flight will depart Heathrow at 15:05, arriving in Beijing at 09:35 the following day.


The return flights to London depart Daxing Airport on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Flight BA88 is scheduled to depart Beijing at 11:20, landing at Heathrow at 17:20 the same day.


Along with fellow UK carrier, Virgin Atlantic initially offering flights between London and Shanghai.
