Chinese National flag carrier Air China has launched non-stop flights linking Beijing, the Chinese capital, with Houston, Texas, home of the Houston Rockets, where Chinese basketball great Yao Ming thrilled basketball fans for nearly a decade.

The flight will operate four days a week.

“Houston continues to enhance its position as a key global gateway, and the arrival of Air China speaks volumes about the potential for even more growth in the future,” says Houston Mayor Annise Parker.

“The cultures and economies of Beijing and Houston continue to draw closer together than ever before and nonstop air service between the two cities will help both sides maximize the benefits associated with new partnerships and greater connectivity.”
