China Airlines and China Eastern Expand Mileage Program Cooperation

Travel News Asia 8 December 2005

China Airlines and China Eastern Airlines are expanding their mileage programs cooperation effective 1 January 2006. In the future, when flying with one of the airlines, frequent flyer members will be able to choose to accumulate mileage on either frequent flyer program.

China Airlines and China Eastern Airlines began mileage program cooperation in September, 2004. At the initial stage, all China Airlines international flights, and sectors of China Eastern's Hong Kong-Shanghai and Okinawa-Shanghai flights, were eligible for this cooperation program. In 2006, both airlines will expand the cooperation to all scheduled flights. The cooperation expansion will benefit around 7 million frequent flyer members for them to accumulate flown mileage faster in exchange for free tickets and free upgrades.

There are 2 million members in CAL's Dynasty Flyer Program. With 15,000 miles, members of the Dynasty Flyer Program can exchange their miles for seat upgrades on regional flights. There are more than 5 million members in China Eastern's Eastern Miles Club. Their members can exchange for domestic seat upgrades after only 3,000 kilometers. Currently, China Airlines has mileage program cooperation with three major aviation groups in China, i.e. Air China, China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.
