First four Beijing-Lisbon flights on Capital Airlines close to selling out

The first four direct flights between China and Portugal will take off tomorrow with few – if any – vacant seats, the Lusa news agency reports.

The report says the Capital Airlines flight linking Hangzhou and Lisbon via Beijing is scheduled to fly three times a week. The airline also commences flights on the Macau-Beijing route tomorrow.

The report says 183,000 Mainland Chinese tourists visited Portugal last year, triple the number of arrivals from three years ago.
