Air China switches Chengdu flight from Gatwick to Heathrow

Air China will on 2 April move its direct three-weekly service between Chengdu and London from London Gatwick Airport to London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 2.

The airline has operating operating the route since 3 July last year, with nearly 30,000 passengers being flown, but has made the move as Heathrow is closer to central London.

Passengers will be able to choose from three weekly departures, leaving London on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Flight CA423/4 will be served by a high-density Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

Air China UK, general manager, Jingjie Li said: “As the national flag carrier of China, we are continuously looking for ways to improve our services and flight routes between the UK and China, so we are excited to announce that our direct flights between London and Chengdu will be operating out of London Heathrow.”
