Virgin America signs codeshare agreement with China Southern Airlines

Virgin America and China Southern Airlines announced a codeshare agreement to offer seamless booking and travel between China, Southeast Asia and multiple Virgin America destinations across the United States.

Under the new agreement, China Southern will place its two-digit airline code (CZ) and flight numbers on a range of Virgin America routes operating from Los Angeles and San Francisco — including West Coast flights to and from Boston, Chicago, Dallas Love Field, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Newark, New York (JFK), Seattle, San Diego and Washington DC.

This partnership will bring expanded choice and convenience for travelers flying between China Southern´s numerous Chinese and Southeast Asia destinations and the United States.

This agreement is unique in that China Southern is the only airline offering non-stop service between Guangzhou and Wuhan and the United States.

Established in 1991, China Southern, which is headquartered in Guangzhou, offers daily flights from Guangzhou to San Francisco (three flights per week with one stop in Wuhan), ten flights per week from Guangzhou to Los Angeles, and daily flights from Guangzhou to New York. China Southern has the most extensive network in China and in Asia and a strong presence in Europe and Oceania.

Known for its mood-lit cabins, beautifully designed classes of service and innovative fleetwide amenities, Virgin America has built a loyal following of flyers and earned a host of awards since launching in 2007
