China Airlines and Virgin America Introduce Codeshare Flights

China Airlines and Virgin America have introduced codeshare flights for travel between several destinations in both Asia and the United States.

The new agreement includes China using its airline code (CI) on various Virgin Americans flights such as Los Angeles and/or San Francisco to Boston, Chicago, Dallas Love Field, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Newark, New York (JFK), Seattle and Washington Dulles (IAD).  

Beginning on October 26th, 2014, China Airline guests will have more options from Taipei to 11 destinations in the United States with the codeshare flights.

Virgins Director of Network Planning, Adam Green, states the importance of this partnership due to Taiwan being an inbound and outbound tourism market and the opportunity to travel uninterrupted by using one-stop check-in.  

This expands on the two airlines current interline agreement that was initiated in May 2012.

Bookings can be made today for travel on/after October 26, 2014.
