How to book
Google Flights usually is the best tool for finding the best dates, but it does not currently work with Air China. Instead, we recommend making use of the Skyscanner calendar feature. Enter your origin and destination cities. When you press the date button, choose the “Whole Month” option at the top of the calendar window and press “Search Flights”. This will allow you to enter your ideal month(s) of travel and then choose the lowest fares from the calendar that shows on the next page.
