The first-ever nonstop flight between Las Vegas and Beijing, in Mainland China, is going to operate from December 2nd on every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This new route will be launched by Hainan Airlines, which filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation in August.
Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with 34 business class lie-flat seats and 177 economy class seats, will be used for the new route. The flight HU7970 will depart Las Vegas McCarran International Airport at 12:30 PM and arrive in Beijing’s Capital Airport at 5:30 PM the subsequent day, allowing for connections to other points in China. Flight HU7969 will depart Beijing at 2:20 PM and arrive in Las Vegas at 10:30 AM the same day. Las Vegas times are one hour later during the summer season. Nonstop flight time is approximately 13 hours westbound and 12 hours eastbound.
