Qantas is building its China network, with daily China Eastern codeshare flights between Shanghai and Chengdu and Xi’an.

“Growth in both business and leisure travel sees us currently operating ten flights per week between Australia and China – seven to Shanghai and three to Beijing,” said Mr Rob Gurney, Qantas Group General Manager Sales and Distribution. “To complement these Qantas-operated services, daily onward connections from Shanghai will now be available with China Eastern to both Chengdu and Xi’an.”

Xi’an, located in the Yellow River Basin, is known as the Eternal City and is home to the Museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses. Chengdu, located in the west of the Sichuan Basin is the capital of what is known as the ‘Heavenly State’, the habitat of giant pandas.

“The expansion of our partnership with China Eastern also includes a daily return codeshare service between Shanghai and Beijing operated by China Eastern. This will complement our direct services from Sydney and give Qantas customers greater choices in accessing the Chinese capital,” Mr Gurney added.

Qantas also offers connections to the Chinese mainland from Hong Kong, with 31 return flights a week to Hong Kong from Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

Members of Qantas’ Frequent Flyer program will earn points on the new China Eastern codeshare flights.
