Service to bring greater convenience and flexibility to passengers

BEIJING, December 23, 2010 - Air China today became the first Chinese airline to offer
combined tickets that include domestic flights and shuttle bus services to
nearby cities. The first combined flight-shuttle bus ticket will connect
Tianjin via shuttle bus with domestic flights passing through Beijing. The
service will later be expanded to hub cities such as Shanghai and Chengdu,
connecting them via shuttle bus to their peripheral cities.

The new service will expand Air China's network and make it much
more convenient for passengers living in cities surrounding the nation's
airport hubs. Previously, passengers transferring to or from a shuttle bus
had to fill out a form to carry on their journey. But now passengers are able
to check, book and buy combined tickets on Air China's website or through the
sales hotline.

The combined route includes two parts: an Air China flight; and
the shuttle bus, which is also given a flight number. The shuttle bus from
Beijing to Tianjin, for example, has flight numbers of CA9001 and CA9003. If
a passenger from Tibet wants to fly to Tianjin, he can buy a combined ticket
on Air China's website and get to his destination just by showing his ID

Zhou Enyong, General Manager of Air China's Marketing Department,
said, "Air China's new flight-shuttle bus combined ticket brings more
flexibility to the hub network. It is just the latest example of how Air
China strives to provide more innovative services to passengers and make
their lives more comfortable."
