Can a international frequent flyer program member accumulate points when booking flight tickets on Chinese airlines

Last updated by fabiowzgogo at 10/10/2013 2:38:00 AM, Clicks: 3870

There are four major airlines in China including Air China, Shanghai Airlines, China Southern Airlines, and Dragon Air. The four major airlines currently belong to international frequent flyer programs and it is therefore possible to accumulate points for flights on these airlines. Besides, Air China and Shanghai Airlines are members of Star Alliance. China Southern Airlines belongs to Sky Team.

Claim your points

If you are a member of a frequent flyer program, you should remember to advise your membership information and tell our travel advisor your member number. Show your member card when you board the flight and your points will be confirmed within 2 months.

If you do not get you points in this way, it is possible to claim point by contacting the air company at a later date. You need to keep your ticket or a copy of your e-ticket and your boarding pass until your points are confirmed.
