To stir up interest, the airline is running several promotions such as promising the first 99 customers to purchase a limited-edition Distinguished Travel Card, a free First Class round-trip ticket to any of its international destinations and the first 299 customers to purchase one of the 10,000 limited-edition Smooth Travel Cards, a free Economy Class round-trip ticket to any of its domestic destinations, plus credit of CNY1,000 (US$103) among others.
The offer is valid until December 31, 2009. Passengers can call 86 4008 986 999, then press 6 to order their Business Travel Card. It can be used starting from September 16, 2009. Once the card’s credit is used up, it can be recharged.
