Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its operation between Berlin and Beijing by adding more flights to the route.
Over the last 15 years, the carrier has operated the route more than 4,500 times, handling almost 900,000 passengers and handling over 56,000 tonnes of cargo.
To celebrate, the service will be upgraded from thrice weekly to four weekly and will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Congratulations in order for Hainan Airlines on the Berlin-Beijing Route…
“Congratulations to Hainan Airlines on the 15th anniversary of its connection between the German capital region and Beijing.”
“Long-term success shows that the demand for long-haul tourism and business travel is permanently stable in the connected cultural and economic metropolises.”
“The decision for the route enables a lively city partnership between Berlin and Beijing.”
Adding to this was Min Zhang, the General Manager of the Berlin Office for Hainan Airlines:
“We are pleased that we are once again able to offer our passengers a range of flights between our countries that is close to the level of the pre-pandemic year 2019.”
“Hainan Airlines is the bridge between the two capitals and also conveniently connects Berlin with many destinations in China and in Asia via Beijing, such as Tokyo and Bangkok.”
Below is the scheduling for the services:
- Departure from Beijing at 2:20 am – arrival at BER at 6:25 am

September 2008 was when the Chinese carrier instigated services between Berlin and Beijing and was recently reintroduced in August 2022 following closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
