Air Canada and Air China are expanding their long-standing commercial cooperation agreement, enhancing the interline and codeshare services offered via their respective hubs and in the process making it more convenient for customers to travel between Canada and China while extending the Star Alliance partners\’ international networks.
The new codeshare flights are now available for purchase, and allow seamless bookings and connections for customers and their bags via the carriers\’ Vancouver, Toronto and Beijing hubs to six new China destinations and six new destinations in Canada throughout the two carriers\’ respective networks.
Currently, Air Canada and Air China codeshare on flights operated from Vancouver and Toronto to and from Beijing and Shanghai. With the expanded codeshare agreement, Air Canada will place its code on Air China-operated flights (via its Beijing hub) to six new destinations in China, which include Guanghzou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Wuhan and Xi\’An to the south and west of Beijing and Shenyang to the northwest.
Air China customers will in turn have access from Air Canada\’s Vancouver hub, with Air China\’s code being placed on Air Canada-operated flights to six of Canada\’s major cities – Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.
