SAA, Air China sign code-share agreement

PRWeb reports that South African Airways (SAA) has announced a code share agreement with Air China that will complement SAA's newly inaugurated non-stop service between Johannesburg and Beijing.
Both airlines, which are members of Star Alliance, will introduce code-share services on the newly-launched main route Johannesburg-Beijing-Johannesburg, as well as on the Beijing to Shanghai routes - on which SAA Voyager members will earn miles.

Mzimela expected the deal to pay dividends both in terms of trade and tourism. "This code share agreement with Air China [will benefit] both African and Chinese interests, as well as [...] other growing economies, such as Brazil, which now has easy and convenient access to China through SAA's service," he said.
