China Southern Airlines, the largest of China’s three major state-owned carriers, said Friday it would offer what it calls “trial Elite status” that will provide benefits from both China Southern as well as all SkyTeam airlines.

Travelers with higher-level elite status that would qualify them for oneworld Emerald or Sapphire benefits, Star Alliance Gold, or SkyTeam Elite Plus, will be granted China Southern Sky Pearl Gold, which also includes SkyTeam Elite Plus benefits on other airlines. Those with a lower status level will be given China Southern Sky Pearl Silver.

The offer is valid through the end of the year and the matched status will be in effect through February 28, 2019. A valid China Southern frequent flyer account as well as proof of current status on another airline are required.

China Southern currently offers daily flights from Guangzhou to San Francisco, ten weekly flights from Guangzhou to Los Angeles, and daily flights from Guangzhou to New York.
