China Eastern Airlines denies plans to dispose of Shanghai Airlines
China Eastern Airlines (MU, Shanghai Hongqiao) has denied reports in the Chinese press linking it to the proposed sale of its wholly-owned Shanghai Airlines (FM, Shanghai Hongqiao) unit. The reports had quoted people familiar with the discussions as saying the carrier had approached Beijing about the disposal which would have seen Shanghai Airlines develop into an independent operator. However, in a statement to the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) on Friday, July 28, China Eastern flatly rejected the claims adding that "it has never had any plan to dispose of its equity interest in Shanghai Airlines". "The information reported in those media reports is therefore inaccurate and incorrect," it said. China Eastern completed its acquisition and takeover of Shanghai Airlines in February 2010.

China Eastern Airlines start codeshare flights
China Eastern Airlines will operate Jet Airways' Delhi-Shanghai Pudong and Kolkata-Kuming routes.
Naresh Goyal-promoted Jet Airways and Chinese carrier China Eastern Airlines have commenced codeshare flights amid the increasing hostility between the two countries over the construction of a road near Bhutan tri-junction.
As part of the codeshare partnership inked earlier, China Eastern Airlines will operate Jet Airways' Delhi-Shanghai Pudong and Kolkata-Kuming routes.
The Jet Airways will operate Delhi-Bengaluru, Delhi-Kolkata and Delhi-Mumbai routes of the Shanghai-based airline.
A Jet Airways spokesperson confirmed the commencement of air services by the two carriers from yesterday as part of the reciprocal codeshare partnership.
Codesharing allows an airline to book on its passenger on its partner carriers and provide seamless transport to destination where it has no presence.
Following this, the Jet Airways customers can now fly seamlessly to Pudong and Kunming cities in China from New Delhi and Kolkata.
Similarly, Chinese passengers will have direct connectivity to Bengaluru, Kolkata and Mumbai from New Delhi through the flights operated by Jet Airways.
China Eastern Airlines, which has three subsidiaries as well a cargo carrier and is a member of the global airlines grouping SkyyTeam, operates to 217 destinations through its hub at Shanghai Pudong International airport.
Besides, it has secondary hubs at Beijing, Kunming, Xi'an and Qingdao.
The military standoff between India and China began on June 16 after the Chinese army tried to build a road near the Bhutan tri-junction.
India has protested the construction of the road, fearing it would allow China to cut India's access to its north-eastern states.

China Eastern Airlines Corporation Limited Stock Sees The Needle Move -2.21%
The stock closed the most recent session at $29.21 after seeing 6191 shares trade hands. This represents a change of 0.62% from the opening.
The closing price represents the final price that a stock is traded for on a trading day. It’s the most up-to-date valuation until trading begins again on the next day. However, most financial instruments are traded after hours, which means that the the closing price of a stock might not match the after-hours price. Regardless, closing prices are a useful tool that investors use to quantify changes in stock prices over time. The closing prices are compared day-by-day to look for trends and can measure market sentiment for any security over the course of a trading day.
Stock exchanges work according to the invisible hand of supply and demand, which determines the price where stocks are bought and sold. No trade can occur until someone is willing to sell a stock at a price that another is willing to buy it at. When there are more buyers than sellers, the stock price will rise because of the increased demand. Conversely, if more individuals are selling a stock, the price will decrease.
On any given trading day, supply and demand fluctuates back-and-forth because the attractiveness of a commodity’s price rises and falls. Because of these fluctuations, the closing and opening prices are not necessarily identical. A number of factors can affect the attractiveness of a stock in the hours between the closing bell and the next day’s opening bell. For example, if there is good news like a positive earnings announcement, the demand for a stock may increase, raising the price from the previous day’s close. It follows that bad news will negatively affect price.

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

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.
