Shanghai Airlines Reviews

Shanghai Airlines (Chinese: 上海航空公司) is an airline headquartered in the Jing’an District, Shanghai, People’s Republic of China. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of China Eastern Airlines, but its operations remain separate post-merger, retaining its distinct brand and livery. Shanghai Airlines operates domestic and international services. The logo is a white crane on a red vertical tail fin. Its bases are Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport. The airline is an affiliate member of the SkyTeam airline alliance with its parent company China Eastern Airlines.

Shanghai Airlines has a substantial domestic network shared with its parent company China Eastern Airlines. The airline serves over 140 domestic and international destinations, giving access to more than 60 large and medium-sized cities in Mainland China and abroad. Its international flights focus on Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand. Shanghai Airlines’ frequent-flyer program is called Eastern Miles (simplified Chinese: 东方万里行; traditional Chinese: 東方萬里行). After the merger with China Eastern Airlines, the frequent-flyer programs were also merged. Eastern Miles became the official frequent-flyer program of Shanghai Airlines on June 8, 2011. Enrollment is free of charge. Eastern Miles members can earn miles on flights as well as through the usage of China Eastern’s Eastern Miles Credit Cards. When enough miles are collected, members can be upgraded to VIP. VIP membership of Eastern Miles can be divided into two tiers: Golden Card membership and Silver Card membership. VIP membership can enjoy extra privileged services. Crane Club (simplified Chinese: 金鹤俱乐部; traditional Chinese: 金鶴俱樂部) was the frequent-flyer program of Shanghai Airlines prior to the merger with China Eastern Airlines. However, Shanghai Airlines announced on April 2011 [11] that the Crane Club will be merged into China Eastern’s Eastern Miles Program. It was officially merged into Eastern Miles on June 8, 2011. After the merger, members can earn and use their mileage on China Eastern’s flights.

Shanghai Airlines, with the contribution of its well-recognized Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) program, has had zero accidents, fatalities or severe damage to its aircraft in its history, making it one of the safest airlines in Asia.
