Note, The optional add-on flight from your home city to the Air China gateway must be arranged according to the provisions of the Air China contract with various U.S./Canadian carriers in order to qualify as a through-fare with the Air China transpacific flight to China. These contracted flights are subject to availability. The booking procedures, fare class, flight options, airports and layover times are strictly determined by Air China contract. The flights available under the Air China contract have a limited seat inventory. If you prefer different flight times, routing, or layovers, you are free to do so on your own, but we cannot package non-contract flights as part of your China tour package.
If you choose to layover in Air China gateway city, a $30/each way stopover surcharge will be added by the airline to your add-on fare.
Please do not arrange U.S./Canada domestic flights from your home city to Air China gateway on your own before the tour is confirmed. Since flight schedules can change, we strongly suggest that you leave plenty of connecting time—at least 3½ hours—between flights.
Please be advised that New York has three main airports, but Air China uses only JFK. The add-on flights to New York on the Air China contract may get you to any of the three airports depending on which flight you are confirmed on. If your flight does not arrive at the JFK airport, you must arrange for ground transportation to JFK on your own.
