First Belgrade-Beijing flight on 15 September

Beijing-based Hainan Airlines will launch its first Beijing-Belgrade via Prague flight on 15th September. The first plane from Beijing is supposed to land at Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport at 9:20am, and leave for Beijing two hours later.

The Chinese airliner is still waiting for all the required permits for the Prague-Belgrade flight, and once that is settled, the tickets will be on sale – the Ex-Yu Aviation website finds out. Hainan Airlines plans to have Belgrade-Beijing flights twice a week – on Mondays and Fridays.

The airplane that will be used for this flight is Airbus A330-200/300 which has 292 seats – 260 in Economy and 32 in Business class. This type of plane is already used on Beijing-Prague flights. The Chinese company also says that they might use Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Additionally, Hainan Airlines has acquired a permit to fly from Beijing to Belgrade via Prague three times a week.

Serbia has been waiting for quite some time for this flight to launch, and the layover in Prague is only a temporary solution. Currently, it takes Hainan ten hours to fly from Prague to Beijing.

Hainan Airlines was established 23 years ago, and so far, the company has had over 5 million hours of flying. The Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC) has thrice ranked the airliner one of the safest in the world. Hainan mostly has Boeings 737 and 787 and Airbuses 330 in its fleet which numbers 162 planes for passenger and cargo flights.
