China Eastern Improves Service for U.S. and China

Starting in 2014, China Eastern Airlines will introduce new generation Boeing 777-300ER airplanes to its round-trip New York to Shanghai route. The airline also plans to add more routes to the network in order to expand its capacity to meet the growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region.

In 2012, China Eastern served 73 million travelers and ranked among the world’s top five airlines in terms of passenger transportation volume. The airline expects to carry 80 million passengers this year, said Lu Ping, general manager of China Eastern Airlines-New York.

China Eastern’s new Boeing 777-300ERs will be introduced to the New York-Shanghai route next year in order to meet the region’s market growth. The new carriers are equipped with private stand-alone first class cabins that include a cloakroom and double bed.

In conjunction with China’s new 72-hour visa-free policy for transit travelers, China Eastern introduced a series of new ground services including hotel accommodations, sightseeing tours, dining, and shopping in order to provide their passengers with an even more well-rounded experience in Shanghai.
