The first direct flight linking the capitals of China and Germany launched in Beijing at 2:30 p.m. on Friday.

Each Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, Hainan Airlines takes off from Beijing at 2:30 p.m. and reaches Berlin at 6 p.m. local time. The return flight takes off from Berlin at 8:20 p.m. and reaches Beijing at 11:10 a.m. the next morning.
