Korean Air and China Eastern Airlines have agreed to expand their codeshare cooperation starting June 1st, as the busier summer season begins.

According to the agreement, the two airlines will codeshare on five major routes operated by both airlines. All flights on routes connecting Incheon with Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, Weihai and Changsha will be codeshared on a free sale basis. The free sale agreement allows Korean Air to sell seats on China Eastern operated flights without restriction, as long as the inventory is open, and vice versa.

Until now, Korean Airs codeshare with China Eastern was limited to two regional routes, Busan ~ Shanghai and Cheongju ~ Shanghai, on a seat swap basis with limited capacity. These will also be converted to free sale.

With the expanded codeshare, Korean Air passengers will be able to choose from a much wider schedule, adding 77 weekly flights operated by China Eastern to its own 74 weekly operations. The 151-weekly schedule will also greatly enhance the connectivity to transpacific flights, making travel between China and the Americas more convenient.
