Taiwan's China Airlines signed a codeshare agreement with Russian carrier Transaero on 25 April.
The codeshare will begin on 1 May, with the carrier to place its code on Transaero's Bangkok-Moscow service. This will be operated twice weekly, says the SkyTeam alliance member.
China Airlines is also in discussions with unnamed carriers for further codeshares. This is in addition to the codeshare deals it has with Transaero and SkyTeam alliance members such as Delta Air Lines, KLM, Garuda Indonesia and China Southern Airlines.
