Air China officially resumed its Beijing-Madrid-São Paulo passenger air services this Sunday, after a hiatus of more than four years, marking the company’s return to the South American market.

Flights, which had been suspended since the Covid-19 pandemic, were restarted with a Boeing 787-9 aircraft, carrying more than 260 passengers.

Covering a vast distance of 17,500 kilometers, the flights will take more than 25 hours to reach Brazil and, as such, the company operates one of the longest single-stop flights in the world.

According to the company, the flight takes place on Thursdays and Sundays, taking off from Beijing at 3pm, with a technical stopover in Madrid, Spain, and should arrive in Guarulhos, São Paulo, at 5:05am (local time) on following day.

The return flight takes off at 9:15 am, in São Paulo, and will arrive in Beijing at 7:30 pm the following day. The duration is around 23 hours and 15 minutes.
