About First Class flights to China
Enjoy the finer things in life onboard a First Class flight to Beijing, Shanghai and other destinations in China.
First Class flights are ideal for travellers who want to enjoy every step of their journey with luxury amenities and premium services both onboard the aircraft and at the airport. Direct flights to China usually take between 10 and 12 hours; time that you can spend relaxing on a fully flat bed or enjoying on-demand entertainment on a personal screen.

Our Travel Experts' recommendations
British Airways is one of the most popular airlines for passengers flying First Class to China. Make use of a generous baggage allowance and access to the prestigious Concorde Room at London Heathrow before boarding. During the flight, enjoy signature dishes and afternoon tea from the à la carte menu or catch up on some sleep in a fully flat bed complete with a quilted mattress and Egyptian cotton bedding.
Airport lounge access
First Class passengers arriving at Beijing will find dedicated lounges for Air China, Cathay Pacific and other airlines, and can also make use of the BGS Premier Lounges in Terminals 2 and 3.
