Air China and Hawaiian Airlines plan to implement a reciprocal codeshare on 15 February, subject to government approval.
Air China will initially display Hawaiian’s code on its flights between Beijing and Honolulu, as well as on certain flights within China, including those from Beijing to Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai Hongqiao and Shenzhen, according to a US regulatory filing on 22 January.
Hawaiian will display Air China’s code on its flights between Beijing and Honolulu – service begins on 16 April – as well as certain US domestic flights, including those from Honolulu to Kahului (Maui), Los Angeles, New York JFK and San Francisco, the filing states.
The airlines are also seeking authority to codeshare on flights to third countries.
Lou Yongfeng, managing director of international affairs and cooperation at Air China, and Peter Ingram, chief commercial officer at Hawaiian, signed the codeshare agreement on 10 December 2013.
The carriers implemented an interline agreement in 2012.
