Air China launched a new flight to connect China's easternmost county of Fuyuan and Beijing. Fuyuan, located in Heilongjiang province, is only a few dozen kilometers from Khabarovsk, the largest city in the Russian Far East. Russian tourists often fly from the city to Beijing.
The flight, with a stop in Harbin, Heilongjiang's capital city, is operated by Air China using a Boeing 738. Flight CA1689 will depart every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from Beijing at 7:45 am and arrive in Fuyuan at 11:55 am. The return flight, CA1690, departs at 12:45 am from Fuyuan and arrives in Beijing at 4:50 pm on the same days.
