Joint Venture Links Europe and China Airlines

Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, China Southern Airlines and Xiamen Airlines announced the merger of their existing joint venture agreements.

The aim is to create even stronger links between the partners and offer customers smoother, seamless travel solutions between the European and Chinese airlines.

By connecting the four airlines’ networks, the joint venture offers customers a wide choice of destinations connecting Europe (Paris and Amsterdam) to China (Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and Xiamen). Transfer and connection times have also been optimised.

Air France-KLM customers can also earn Flying Blue Miles on all flights operated within this joint venture formed by the four airlines.

Every year, the four airlines – Air France, KLM, China Southern and Xiamen Airlines – carry some 1,250,000 passengers between Europe and China on their joint-operated routes.
