Home to one billion people and one very long wall, China has often ranked highly on most American’s travel bucket lists. From the modern, bustling cities of Shanghai and Beijing, to the quiet mountain regions of Chengdu and the coastal bliss of Hainan, there’s something for everyone.

The best way to fly to the “Middle Kingdom” this year is through Air China, a member of the Star Alliance group. We spotted a number of easy and affordable flights to China this summer, with many non-stop routes from U.S. cities.

A few of the deals we found: fly round-trip to Chengdu from LAX for only $944, or to Beijing for only $1,179. If you’re flying from Northern California, there are flights San Jose to Shanghai for $864, which is the first non-stop flight from the region.

For routes flying out of Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, premium economy upgrades are easy and affordable. If you want to take the more luxurious route, Air China’s premium members are treated to personal concierge service and complimentary chauffeured luxury car service.

The airline is China’s exclusive national carrier, and any accrued miles can contribute towards you garnering elite Air China membership status. They’re now offering non-stop service from Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, New Jersey, Washington Dulles, Houston, Honolulu, Vancouver and Montreal. Start browsing dates here.
