We offer the best and fastest connectivity options with a total of 31 weekly flights, operated with the latest and most comfortable B787 and B777 aircraft, to four gateways in China; Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, and with an immediate connection to 52 destinations in Africa and Sao Paulo in Brazil.

"For sure, this move will play a significant role to the growing economic and people-to-people ties between Africa and China."
