Northwest Airlines to display code on China's domestic flight numbers

Published on .

Northwest Airlines of the U.S. will become the first foreign airline to display its code (NW) on China's domestic flight numbers as of Dec. 19 in a code-sharing pact with Air China, China's flagship carrier. This will give North-west Airlines' customers direct access to nine cities in China, either on Northwest aircraft or through its code-sharing relationship with Air China. The Chinese cities are Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Xi'an, Nanjing, Qingdao, Chengdu and Xiamen, in addition to Beijing. Northwest is the only foreign airline with a code-sharing pact on domestic flights in China.
