Virgin Atlantic looking for joint venture with China Eastern and Air France KLM

Virgin Atlantic is looking to enter into a joint venture with China Eastern and Air France-KLM.

Once approved, the new deal is set to formally replace the current joint venture China Eastern has with Virgin Atlantic’s future partners, Air France-KLM, who already work together on a portfolio of flights between Paris, Amsterdam and China. 

Expected to launch in Spring 2020, Virgin Atlantic plans to seek to codeshare for the first time on China Eastern services between London and Shanghai.  This will open up a range of customer benefits, including the opportunity to earn and redeem miles across both carriers on flights between the UK and China.
