Afriqiyah Airways launches Tripoli-Beijing service

Building on its success of connecting many capitals in the African continent and the rest of the world, through its hub in Tripoli, Afriqiyah Airways has launched direct flights to Beijing, China. 

Beijing, Afriqiyah's new landing point, represents the airline's furthest destination at an impressive distance of 9260 kilometers.Flights on Airbus A330 from Tripoli to Beijing will operate every Tuesday-Thursday, departing at 10:00am, while flights from Beijing to Tripoli will depart at 5:30am.

The Libya based airline started the twice a week service to meet the rising travel demand from the Chinese business people and laborers seeking to work abroad.A stark indication of China's economic and technical cooperation with Africa is illustrated by the fact currently about 60% of the Chinese passengers to Africa are technicians and 25% are individual tourists.
