United and Air China expand codeshare deal

3 Jun 2015 by GrahamSmith

Star Alliance members United Airlines and Air China have expanded their codeshare agreement to include 22 new routes.

United will place its UA code on ten Air China-operated domestic flights — from Beijing to Mianyang, Taiyuan, Sanya, Shanghai Hongqiao, Yinchuan, Xining, Liuzhou, Haikou and Lanzhou; and from Shanghai Pudong to Yinchuan.

Air China will place its CA code on 12 United-operated domestic flights — from Los Angeles to Dallas, Cleveland, Tucson, San Antonio, New York Newark and Seattle; from San Francisco to Salt Lake City and Austin; from Washington DC to Columbus and Tampa; and from Houston to Tampa and Nashville.

The move means United and Air China now codeshare together on more than 100 routes.

Air China has six gateways in the US — New York JFK, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Washington DC and Honolulu.

Last week, it was announced that Air China will launch a non-stop service between Beijing and Montreal later this year as part of its joint venture agreement with Air Canada (see news, May 28).
