The two airlines are expanding their codeshare agreement and introducing reciprocal frequent flyer benefits and airport lounge access.

“We are delighted to see our partnership with American Airlines being further strengthened,” said Zhang Lin, China Southern’s assistant president.

Under the expanded codeshare agreement, American will be able to add its flight number to five destinations including Urumqi, Guiyang, and Guilin. It will also introduce codeshare service from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to nine destinations served by China Southern including Ghangzhou, Shenzhen, and Xingheng.

The agreement also allows China Southern to place its code on American flights from Los Angeles International, San Francisco International, and New York’s John F. Kennedy International airports covering a total of 21 cities.

In addition, the two airlines will codeshare on each other’s transpacific flights between the United States and China.

American first announced its initial codeshare agreement with China Southern in January of this year, following a $200 million investment in the airline.
