Amer­i­can Air­lines has an­nounced plans to code­share with China South­ern, China’s largest air­line. The agree­ment, ex­pected to be­gin later this year, fol­lows the US car­rier’s $200 mil­lion eq­uity in­vest­ment in the Chi­nese air­line.

The code­share gives Amer­i­can Air­lines pas­sen­gers ac­cess to more than 40 Chi­nese des­ti­na­tions when con­nect­ing in Bei­jing, and 30 cities from Shang­hai. China South­ern cus­tomers will be able to fly to al­most 80 des­ti­na­tions in North and South Amer­ica from Los Angeles, San Fran­cisco and NewYork JFK.

“We are two of the big­gest car­ri­ers in the world,”noted Robert Isom, pres­i­dent of Amer­i­can Air­lines.“Our net­works are highly com­ple­men­tary, with the po­ten­tial to of­fer China South­ern and Amer­i­can cus­tomers an un­matched range of des­ti­na­tions in two crit­i­cal mar­kets for busi­ness and leisure trav­el­ers.”
