A Capital of All Nations

As the "Capital of All Nations," Geneva is where the world converges. The
League of Nations, the predecessor of the United Nations, was born here. Now,
Geneva is home to over 200 leading international organizations, including,
among others, the United Nations European headquarters, the International
Labor Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the
Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Geneva is where United
Nations alone meets over 8,000 times each year and almost all important issues
of the world are discussed. The city is also home to the European headquarters
of such leading multinational corporations as Procter & Gamble, Serono, and
Firmenich. Geneva is the world's epicurean center with its 1,100 restaurants;
it is one of the world's most exciting places to eat, with alfresco
restaurants and cafes strewn throughout the city where both locals and
visitors can shoot the breeze and enjoy the sun over a cup of coffee or a
glass of fine wine.

An Easy Journey

Before Air China commenced Beijing-Geneva rotations, Geneva had never been
linked by nonstop flights with Beijing and even the entire East Asia, and thus
Chinese travelers bound for Geneva had to make transfers elsewhere. Now, Air
China's Beijing-Geneva route spares passengers the trouble of having to make
transfers and thusly tremendously cuts the time they have to spend on the
whole journey. It also offers an additional flight option to travelers to and
from Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Manila.

The opening of the nonstop service Beijing-Geneva has increased the number of
European destinations served by Air China to 12. It's a worthy addition to the
carrier's extensive network serving Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, and other
European destinations.

Air China's Beijing-Geneva Route:

The Beijing - Geneva nonstop flights, CA861/862, are offered four times a
week. The outbound flight departs from Beijing at 13:30 Beijing time and
arrives in Geneva at 18:25 local time; the return flight departs from Geneva
at 20:25 local time and arrives in Beijing at 12:55 the following day.
