ANA and Shenzhen Airlines to Start Code-sharing in May

TOKYO March 19, 2009 - ANA and Shenzhen Airlines will commence a code-sharing and reciprocal mileage agreement on May 20 this year, under which ANA will place its NH flight code on Shenzhen Airline’s four weekly Osaka-Fuzhou-Shenzhen flights, and Shenzhen Airlines will place its ZH code on ANA flights between Tokyo Narita and Guangzhou/ Xiamen, as well as Osaka Kansai-Xiamen flights. The airlines will also code-share on ANA operated domestic flights between Tokyo Haneda and Osaka Kansai. In this manner, ANA and Shenzhen Airlines will expand their respective networks into China and Japan, giving passengers increased convenience and ease when, for example, travelling between Tokyo and Shenzhen.

At the same time, ANA and Shenzhen Airlines will also link their Frequent Flyer Programmes (FFP), allowing ANA Mileage Club (AMC) members and Shenzhen Airline’s King Club members to accrue and redeem mileage on the code-sharing flights.

ANA is pleased to pass on the benefit of the recent fall in the price of jet fuel to its valued customers as follows:
