China’s Hainan Airlines announced it plans to begin nonstop service from Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport to Beijing on June 15, 2015.

Mainland China’s only certified Skytrax® five-star airline will operate two-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner five days a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with early afternoon departure times. The new flight will be the carrier’s fifth North American destination, joining Seattle/Tacoma, Boston, Chicago and Toronto.

Flight 7990 will depart San Jose International Airport at 1:10pm and arrive Beijing at 4:40pm the following day. Flight 7989 will depart Beijing at 2:30pm and arrive San Jose at 11:10am the same day. Flight time is 12 ½ hours westbound and 11 hours 40 minutes eastbound. Connections to and from points throughout China are also possible throughout Hainan’s extensive domestic network. Cargo service will be offered.

“We’re delighted to celebrate the announcement of Hainan Airlines’ new direct service between Beijing and Silicon Valley,” said City of San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo. “With the enthusiastic support demonstrated by our global technology corporations, this new route will be a success. I thank Hainan Airlines for its significant investment in San Jose, and strongly encourage all business and leisure travelers to fly Hainan from Mineta San Jose International Airport.”

“Since we began our Seattle route in June 2008, hundreds of thousands of people have experienced the award-winning service that Hainan Airlines provides between the United States and China” said Mr. Ji Chun Liu, Director of Hainan’s International Department. “Now we are looking forward to welcoming even more travelers from Silicon Valley.

With the growth of the technology industry, trade between China and the U.S., and especially this region, has expanded. Travelers will no longer have to endure traffic and taking longer routings when they are flying to or from Silicon Valley, and San Jose Airport is known for its amenities and accessibility.”

“We are pleased to welcome Hainan Airlines to Silicon Valley and we’re confident our regional business and leisure travelers will respond favorably to this service,” said Director of Aviation Kim Becker Aguirre. “Hainan and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner are well-matched for our market with travelers who prefer to choose Silicon Valley’s airport for our convenience, on-time performance, and technologically-advanced facilities and services.”

Business class passengers are pampered with priority check-in and access to Silicon Valley airport’s lounge. On board, they can relax in luxurious seats that convert into a fully flat bed and feature a turn-down service complete with fluffy pillows, fine cotton sheets and a duvet, pajamas and slippers.

Gourmet Chinese or Western cuisine and wines are served on fine china, glassware and linens; customers may choose when they wish to dine. Freshly brewed espresso and a selection of teas are available. Amenity kits feature famous Bulgari® cosmetics. A state of the art entertainment system offers over 100 movies, audio selections and games on demand.

In San Jose, as well as in Beijing, with advance reservations, premium passengers are treated to complimentary private chauffeured car service both on arrival and departure.

Those making connections to other Chinese destinations may take advantage of the new business class lounge in Terminal 1 offering a wide range of luxurious amenities.

Economy class passengers can also enjoy complimentary beverages, meals, snacks as well as the same state-of-the-art entertainment system on individual seat-back screens. If connecting in Beijing, an exclusive transit lounge is open to economy class passengers.
