China Airlines and Air China Cooperate on Frequent Flyer Program

April 25, 2005, Taipei, Taiwan – China Airlines and Air China will cooperate on a joint mileage program beginning on May 1, 2005. Starting in May, members of China Airlines Dynasty Frequent Flyer Program can accumulate mileage in their accounts when traveling on Air China. At the same time, members of Air China’s Companion Frequent Flyer Program can enjoy the same benefits when traveling on China Airlines flights. The accumulated mileage can be used to redeem for free tickets and upgrades. The cooperation covers all the routes operated by China Airlines and Air China.

Passengers taking China Airlines flights from Taiwan, and then transferring to Air China, will be able to accumulate mileage on the whole trip, making it easier to accumulate air miles and redeem. For Taiwanese passengers traveling to China, China Airlines provides services from Taipei and Kaohsiung to Hong Kong, and from Hong Kong, Air China provides flights to Beijing, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Dalian, Chongqing, Chengdu and Guiyang.

This is CAL’s second cooperation on a mileage program across the Taiwan Strait, after it began cooperating with China Eastern Airlines last year. China Airlines is also negotiating further mileage program cooperation with additional mainland Chinese carriers.

There are more than 1.6 million members in CAL’s Dynasty Flyer Program. With 15,000 miles, members of the Dynasty Flyer Program can exchange for seat upgrades on regional flights. There are more than 2 million members in Air China’s Companion Frequent Flyer Program, and its members can get upgrades on domestic flights with only 3,000 kilometers.
