Air China - Free Newsletter
Air China is the largest commercial airline in China. It has a growing
reputation for high levels of service combined with a traditional Chinese
welcome. Their logo, the phoenix, is a symbol of good fortune and based on
an artistic perception of the letters "VIP". The Phoenix is a divine bird
in the Chinese legend and has been adored by the Chinese people since ancient
times. According to the record in Shan Hai Jing, the Phoenix is born in an
oriental country called Junzi and flies across the great Kunlun Mountain
and over all of the oceans. Wherever she flies, she brings luck and peace.
The color of the logo is the traditional Chinese red which implies luckiness,
roundness, auspiciousness, happiness. It expresses Air China’s sincere passion
of serving the society and the endless pursuit of the safety.
Air China has business offices in 21 domestic cities and representative offices in 9 American cities, 15 European cities and in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.

I flew to Beijing from London on an Air China flight and was very impressed by the level of service and the efficiency of the whole operation. We took off and landed on time, the food and in-flight service were good and the staff very polite and helpful. Incidentally, I am not connected with Air China!
