AMERICAN AIRLINES AND CHINA SOUTHERN PLAN CODESHARE
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.”
