The national airlines of Serbia and China, Air Serbia and Air China, have renewed their cooperation which started in 2015, with the aim to facilitate simpler travel between the two countries. The codeshare partnership between the two companies was renewed for flights between Belgrade and Beijing, with Air China putting its marketing code on Air Serbia flights between Belgrade and Vienna, while the Serbian airline placed its marketing code on the flights between Vienna and Beijing operated by the Chinese company. In addition to that, the partnership was expanded with the addition of the Air China marketing code to Air Serbia’s flights between Belgrade and Tianjin, which commenced last year in December.
When it comes to other cities in the People’s Republic of China, passengers will now be able to combine Air Serbia’s flights to Tianjin with Air China’s flights from Tianjin to Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Xi’an, thanks to the interline agreement between the two national airlines.
“With the commencement of direct flights to Tianjin, Air Serbia returned to China after more than two decades. We have already further enhanced our presence in this market, by renewing and expanding the commercial cooperation with Air China. We believe that this news will please passengers who had a need for flights between Europe and the Far East, i.e., Belgrade and China”, said Ivana Miklja Mučalov, Manager International Affairs & Alliances, Air Serbia.
