Hawaiian Airlines said it has signed a codeshare agreement with Air China, China´s exclusive national flag carrier, that leverages the reach of their respective hubs in Honolulu and Beijing to offer more options and a more streamlined experience for customers traveling to further destinations.
The new partnership takes effect following Hawaiian´s launch of its three-times weekly nonstop service to Beijing.
“Following the launch of our inaugural service to Beijing, we are delighted to partner with Air China to extend our network beyond the capital city, giving customers the ability to easily explore additional domestic destinations within China on a single ticket from Honolulu,” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines CEO.
Through this comprehensive and multi-phase partnership, Hawaiian Airlines will place its two-letter “HA” booking code on Air China-operated flights from Beijing to Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Shenyang. Likewise, Air China will place its two-letter “CA” booking code on Hawaiian Airlines-operated neighbor island flights from Honolulu to Kahului, LÄ«hu´e, Kona and Hilo.
Hawaiian has led all US carriers in on-time performance for each of the past ten years (2004-2013) as reported by the US Department of Transportation. Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA). Additional information is available at HawaiianAirlines.com.
