A new nonstop flight service linking Beijing and Chicago will be launched by Hainan Airlines on September 3, 2013. The new flight service will be a new addition to Hainan Airlines’ existing nonstop North America-Beijing routes, following the other two routes from Seattle and Toronto.
When the new flight service opened, there will be four flights flying between Beijing and Chicago a week: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Flight HU497 will depart Beijing Capital International Airport at 1:20pm and arrive at Chicago at 1:30pm the same day. Flight 498 will depart Chicago at 3:30pm and arrive at Beijing at 6:40 the next day. All the times are local times.
