China being the largest country in the world, along with the high Chinese population in Canada, there is bound to be a lot of traffic between the two countries. There are several options available for a direct flight. There are several direct flights to choose from to the Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK):
- Air Canada – Toronto, Vancouver
- Air China – Montréal (begins 20 September 2015), Vancouver
- Hainan Airlines – Toronto
An obvious missing destination is Ottawa, though understandable. Though Ottawa is the capital of Canada, it is not one of the busier cities in the country. Some would argue that we are better for it. That being said, there are still some decent alternatives for direct flights from Canada.
Another option I would consider instead of a direct flight is to connect through the United States because you may find some cheaper flights that way.
