[photopress:air_new_zealand.jpg,full,alignright]Air China and Air New Zealand now offer code-share service connecting China, Australia, and New Zealand. Air New Zealand has become the twentieth airline to partner with Air China in cooperative code-share service.
Mrs. Zhang Lan, Senior Vice President for Air China, said, ‘Partnering with a strong, Star Alliance carrier like Air New Zealand is a great benefit for travelers to and from China. We are proud to join with Air New Zealand in expanding passengers’ choices to fly to more destinations, and we believe that Air New Zealand customers will be pleased with the levels of service they will receive onboard our modern Air China fleet.’
Air China will code-share on Air New Zealand flights between Shanghai and Auckland, as well as on some flights between Australia and New Zealand. In return, Air New Zealand will code-share on Air China’s international services between China and Australia, which connect the four major cities of the two countries, namely Beijing and Shanghai with Sydney and Melbourne.
