Approxi 20 daily flights going between Beijing and Xian, mainly operated by three domestic airline giants – Air China, Eastern China Airline, Hainan Airline. The one and half flight makes it possible for foreign travelers to plan a Beijing Xian day trip.

Each airline will change its aircraft type operating according to the actual number of passengers and its flight operations status as well. This morning I take the early morning flight HU1737 set to take off at 7:50am and arrive at Xian at 9:50am if the flight is on time. This Beijing Xian flight HU1737 takes withing 2 hours and operated by Hainan Airlines.
 
Yesterday I went to Hainan Airlines’ official web site and had my Beijing Xian flight checked online to fix my seatinng and got my boarding card. Haihan Airline usese the Terminal 1 of Beijing Capital Airport. So most of the airplanes run by Hainan Airlines take off and land at Terminal 1.
