Virgin Atlantic and China Eastern recently announced a new codeshare agreement, providing greater access for more destinations throughout China for Virgin Atlantic‘s U.S. customers connecting via London’s Heathrow Airport.
“China and East Asia is an incredibly important region for Virgin Atlantic and we were delighted to welcome back our Heathrow to Shanghai service last year, providing vital links to one of the UK and US’s largest trading partners, for both passenger and cargo services,” said Juha Harvinen, CCO, Virgin Atlantic.
Through the first phase of the agreement, customers booking through Virgin Atlantic enjoy a seamless connection from the airline’s Heathrow to Shanghai services to other Chinese destinations on one ticket. Other destinations in China easily accessible through the agreement include Chengdu, Changsha, Qingdao, Shenzen and Xi-an, with flights now on sale for these destinations.
The expanded codeshare also allows Flying Club members to reach rewards faster, with chances to earn Virgin Points and Tier Points on every codeshare flight with China Eastern.
