BEIJING, July 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air China's newly opened FrankfurtChengdu nonstop flights make Chengdu the closest inland Chinese city to Europe. It takes European travelers just 10 hours to fly from the heart of Europe to China's "Land of Plenty" imbued with oriental charms.

Silk, Tea, Giant Panda

While Beijing is the seat of many dynastic governments and Shanghai the throbbing heart of Chinese commercialism, Chengdu, tucked away in southwest China, exudes unique oriental charms. It's the birthplace of Shujin, or Sichuan Brocade, a silk fabric of unique workmanship that traces its origins to the Warring States period of over 2,000 years ago, and its history as a tea trading center provides visitors with a cross section of authentic Chinese tea culture. It's also the hometown of the famous Giant Panda; the city is the world's only habitat for both pandas in captivity and in the wild.

A Livable City

Chengdu, which has played host to China-EU Fair seven times, is western China's important manufacturing and export base, and also a western China's city with the largest number of Fortune 500 companies operating.

An Easily Accessible Hub in Southwest China

Air China debuted its Frankfurt - Chengdu route on May 19, the first nonstop route ever opened between western China and Europe by a Chinese carrier. With Air China's network with Chengdu as a regional hub, European travelers can transfer quickly and easily to other parts of China.

As the largest carrier in Chengdu, Air China now operates over 60 domestic, international and regional routes into and out of Chengdu. After arriving in Chengdu, travelers can continue their journey to other leading cities like Beijing onboard high-frequency "Beijing-Chengdu Express", or to red-hot plateau destinations like Lhasa and Lijiang.

The Chengdu - Frankfurt route is operated with Air China's upgraded A330-200 wide-body aircraft. The number of business class seats has been reduced from 36 to 30, with seat pitch of 203 cm, and the seat can recline 180 degrees to become a full-flat bed. In addition, all classes of service are equipped with personal entertainment system. Such signature Sichuan lil' eats as Pickled fish, Meat Dumplings, Shrimp Wonton Noodles are served onboard, giving European travelers a true taste of Chengdu.
