Hawaiian Airlines announced the signing of a new code share agreement with China Airlines on Wednesday.
The announcement comes after Hawaiian's launch of its new nonstop service to Taipei.
"With this new partnership, our customers will be able to have convenient access to a host of new cities throughout Asia with connections through our new Taipei route," Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Mark Dunkerley said. "We are very excited about our new partnership with China Airlines and look forward to sharing our island hospitality with its customers from cities we do not serve directly today."
The new partnership will take effect in late 2013 and will allow Hawaiian to place its two-letter booking code on China Airlines flights leaving Taipei for Honolulu on Sundays and Honolulu to Taipei on Mondays; flights from Taipei to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore; and flights from Brisbane to Auckland and Sydney to Auckland.
The agreement will also allow seamless booking and check-in on a single ticket for guests traveling between Hawaii and multiple China Airlines destinations throughout Asia.
The reciprocal partnership will allow China Airlines to place its two-letter booking code on Hawaiian Airlines flights leaving Taipei to Honolulu on Mondays and Fridays and Honolulu to Taipei on Sundays and Tuesdays; flights from Honolulu to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Jose and Seattle; and all inter-island flights.
United Airlines is facing a major online backlash. It bumped a Pearl Harbor survivor off a flight from California to Honolulu.
