Need flights to China, why not try China Eastern Airlines ?

Shanghai based, China Eastern Airlines is one of China's big three airlines and is vying for the top spot with the flag carrier, Air China and Guangzhou based, China Southern. When it is revealed that an airline is big in China, it naturally follows that it is big in global terms and China Eastern is no exception. Following its 2009 merger with Shanghai Airlines, China Eastern now carries over 65 Million passengers per year, which puts it in the same league as European giants KLM/AIr France and BA/Iberia. Where China Eastern differs from the European carriers is that it is based in a market which is experiencing rapid growth and China Eastern's hub airports in Shanghai, Kunming (Yunan province) and Xi'an Xianyang are all set for a massive expansion of both domestic and international passenger traffic. China Eastern aready has a modern fleet of around 266 aircraft which includes some Boeings but the majority are supplied by the European manufacturer, Airbus. Almost 100 of these are flexible, short haul Airbus A320's and this fleet is likely to increase as 40 brand new aircraft arrive from the Airbus factory in Toulouse. With over 35,000 employees world-wide and a route network which serves over 120 cities spreading throughout China and right across the globe, China Eastern is an airline destined to bring the world to China's financial capital of Shanghai and also take China to the world

China Eastern Airlines, what to expect ?

China Eastern like to serve major international trunk routes with big aircraft.

Subject to conditions this service allows free stop overs Shanghai or easy connections to Beijing and Shenzhen plus through baggage check to Xian, Harbin, Wuhan, Shenyang, Chongqing, Chengdu, Dalian, Wenzhou, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Kunming and Changsha. Especially worthy of comment are China Eastern's very competitive fares from European gateways such as London, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Paris and Rome to Sydney and Melbourne via Shanghai. On-board the cabin service won't win international awards but it is consistently good and the point of China Eastern isn't about award-winning, it is about getting passengers safely and on-time to their chosen destination with a minimum of fuss and at a value for money ticket price.
