British Airways has announced that they are to “restart” one of their “most important routes” from London Heathrow Airport to Beijing.
The airline said on Sunday that they operated their first flight to Beijing after it was suspended “more than three years” ago when the Coronavirus pandemic started.
Airlines have been reluctant to fly to China amid tough rules, but now Beijing have relaxed their travel restrictions flights have resumed.
Louise Street, British Airways’ director of worldwide airports, said, “The restart of one of our most important routes after more than three years is a long-awaited moment for all of us at British Airways.
“Following the successful resumption of flights between Shanghai and London in April, we’re excited to be back in Beijing too, reuniting families and friends and facilitating international student and business travel once again.”
