Iberia adds four China destinations thanks to agreement with Spring Airlines

Iberia continues to expand in the Chinese market and customers can now book flights via Shanghai to Chongqing, Shenyang, Dalian, and Changchun, thanks to a new code sharing agreement signed with Spring Airlines. 

Spring Airlines customers can now book flights from Shanghai to Madrid under the Chinese airline flight code on Iberia’s thrice-weekly services between both cities.

Under the code-share agreement, customers of the two airlines will enjoy all the benefits offered to connecting flight passengers: the entire journey on one ticket, a wider choice of flights, guarantees in the event of missed connections, among others.

After last week code-share agreement signed by Iberia with Hainan Airlines to the Chinese cities Haikou, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shenzhen, and Xi’an, the Spanish airline’s customers can now flight easily to ten destinations in China.

“Thanks to Spring Airlines we’re going to be able to reach more destinations in China and offer our customers more options and a better product. We already have an agreement with Spring whereby our technical crews can fly temporarily on their aircraft, and this is another step forward,” commented Maria José López Solas, Iberia’s Chief Customer and Network Development Officer. 

Wang Zhijie, CEO of Spring Airlines, commented: “It is important to have codeshare cooperation with Iberia. Both of us could fully utilize respective advantages. This cooperation not only enables Iberia to add popular destinations in China, but also makes Spring Airlines’ route network reach Europe.”
