An Overview for Air China International Airlines

Air China was started on July 1st, 1988. It’s one of the best airlines in China, for both domestic and international air-travel.  Air China is the biggest airline in the world; however by passenger numbers it ranks number 3 in China and sits at number 10 on a global scale. Like everything else in the Middle Kingdom the airline has grown exponentially since its formation in 1988 when CAAC, the Civil Aviation Administration of China separated its airline services from its public service duties overseeing China’s aviation sector. Air China’s success is not a rags to riches story as the airline always had ambitious plans and is fulfilling them. It has progressively improved its fleet, its services, its safety record, its reputation and made a great leap forward joining Star Alliance in 2007. Overnight the airline went from an almost exclusive Chinese carrier to an important international player with an extensive network stemming from one of the world’s most sophisticated airports in Beijing. Air China is listed on the Shanghai, Hong Kong and London Stock Exchanges and also owns shares in several rival airlines. Air China started offering combo tickets, which included domestic flight tickets and shuttle bus service to nearby cities. The attempt was the first-ever made by any Chinese airline.
