PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Nonstop seasonal charter flights will travel between Pittsburgh and China starting in August, a year after they were originally supposed to launch.

The service was initially supposed to launch in summer 2017 and travel from Pittsburgh to Beijing.
According to the Post-Gazette, the flights were postponed to give the Chinese tour operator, Caissa Touristic, more time to sell tickets to Chinese tourists.
