One of the cheapest ways to get around anywhere in the world these days is to use the Chinese airlines. Air China, the Star Alliance member, is no stranger to cutting prices to fill up planes. And now, they are using the Indian festivals to sell even more seats. There are more Air China India deals than ever.
On November 6 and 7, 2018, Air China is offering a 30% discount on Economy class tickets for travel all the way through June 30, 2019. Fly to North America, Mainland China, Europe, Oceania, Korea, Mongolia, Japan from Mumbai and Delhi with this offer.
While the prices are in line with other major airlines on popular routes such as Delhi-New York, tickets on non-marquee routes such as Delhi-Houston via Beijing are available for a reasonable price. I could see a round trip priced at around INR 57,000. Not bad at all.
Make sure you book your flights on Air China metal as this discount will not be applicable on codeshare flights. Also, you have to book directly on their website or mobile app. You can read the rest of the terms and conditions here.
What makes Air China a viable option besides the low fares is their expansive network. You can fly from India to every single continent (except Antartica) via Beijing. This puts Air China in the same league as Emirates and Turkish Airlines in terms of coverage. You can credit miles from your flights to any of the frequent flier programs of 27 member-airlines.
This Air China Diwali offer is an excellent opportunity to grab some decent deals, especially on not so crowded routes. Star Alliance members, don’t forget to collect miles when you fly Air China.
