Air China to suspend Beijing-Hawaii flights
Travel demand remains weak amid an escalating U.S.-China trade war.
Passengers who have purchased tickets for travel after that date will receive a full refund, Air China said in a statement on its website.
The passenger load factor for Air China’s thrice-weekly Beijing-Honolulu route averaged 66.37% last year, according to Chinese aviation data provider Variflight.
That was well below the average load factor of 76.69% for Air China’s international flights last year. ■
