TAM Airlines and Air China expand codeshare agreement

TAM Airlines’ passengers who want to travel to-and-from China and Brazil now have a faster and more comfortable route option. With the expansion of the codeshare agreement between TAM and Air China, passengers can now fly to-and-from Beijing and Brazil through Paris, with a connection at Charles de Gaulle Airport, from where they will travel on flights of the Chinese airline.

TAM’s clients now have available daily flights between Sao Paulo (Guarulhos) and Paris, and another five weekly services between Rio de Janeiro (Galeao) and Paris. As a result, the connection between Brazil and other South American countries to-and-from China, and between China and other Asian destinations, will be reinforced and improved.

The new agreement with Air China is aligned with TAM’s goals of expanding its presence in Asia, where the airline already has a commercial office in Hong Kong (China), commercial representations in South Korea, India, Thailand and Taiwan, as well as management in China (Beijing and Shanghai) and Japan (Tokyo).

Prior to the expansion of the codeshare agreement with Air China, which has been in existence since August 2009, TAM’s codeshare passengers connected over Madrid’s Barajas Airport.

TAM also shares flights with ANA (All Nippon Airways), which offers clients the possibility of travelling to other Asian destinations from Brazil via Tokyo.
