Air China opens the Beijing-Hailar-Chita route

Air China (Beijing) has opened a new Beijing-Hailar-Chita route. The flights, CA 917/8, are operated with Boeing 737-300s on Wednesdays and Fridays.

The city of Chita is the administrative center of Zabaykalsky Krai, Russia and is an important hub of the Trans-Siberian Railway and roads. To its west is Ulan-Ude and to its east Svobodny. Chita provides easy access to China’s Manzhouli. Around the city are rich deposits of tin, aluminum, gold, copper, molybdenum, fluorspar, iron ore and coal as well as large stretches of forests and hydraulic resources, which contribute to Chita’s position as one of eastern Siberia’s important industrial centers.
