Burlingame's Virgin America Partners With Air China

Travelers will soon have new options for traveling between China and North America.

Travelers heading between Chinese and North American cities now have another choice in travel.

Burlingame-based Virgin America recently launched a deal with Air China, offering easy travel along both carriers’ routes in North America and Asia.

When booking on Air China, travelers can now connect through the Virgin America cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York from other Virgin America flights. The airlines will work together transferring luggage between connecting flights.

“We are pleased to launch an interline agreement with Air China that will provide guests of both our airlines connectivity across our two networks, as well as extensive new choices as they plan travel between mainland China and North America,” said Virgin America’s Director of Network Planning, Adam Green. “Virgin America’s 2,600 teammates look forward to welcoming our new Air China guest onboard.”

Air China provides nonstop flights between San Francisco and New York to Beijing daily and between Los Angeles and Beijing twice daily.

“Our partnership with Virgin America creates convenient connecting opportunities at Air China’s strategically important gateways in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York,” said Air China’s Vice President for North America Dr. Zhihang Chi. “This expands and strengthens both our networks and benefits travelers from the United States and China.”

Virgin America has additional interline agreements with Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, Korean Air, Singapore Airlines, South African Airways, Japan Airlines, and more.
