Which airlines fly directly from London to Beijing?

There are currently no direct flights from London to Beijing but several airlines offer flights with only a single stopover. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and China Southern offer regular flights via Amsterdam and Air France offers flights with a single stop in Paris. Most stopovers on these routes are 2-4h long. Most other airlines offer routes involving two, or occasionally three stops with several flights served by Lufthansa, Air China, XiamenAir, Lot, and Air Serbia, frequently in multi-airline combinations. These less direct flights are generally cheaper than more direct options.

What are the stopover options between London and Beijing?

There are numerous stopover options for passengers flying between London and Beijing. There are currently no direct flights between London and China and the most direct routes involve a stopover in Amsterdam or Paris. Many lower-priced options involve three stops and a total travelling time of around 30h, although the durations can vary and some journeys may be shorter, or longer, than that. For example, on Tuesdays Lufthansa flies to Frankfurt Main with a transfer of less than 1h before continuing to Amsterdam. Travellers must then stop over in Amsterdam for just under 15h before boarding a XiamenAir flight to Xiamen, with a brief transit of just under 4h before continuing to Beijing. The total travelling time for this flight comes out at just under 30h. In contrast, one of the most direct options is the China Southern/KLM flight offered on Fridays, which has a single transfer in Amsterdam. Although this is a much more direct option, the stopover of just under 22h in Amsterdam actually makes the total journey longer (32h 45 min). The price, however is comparable. Some passengers may also decide to evaluate the longer stopover on routes such as these as an opportunity to fit in a side-trip to another city en route to China.
