Departing from Brazil on TAM, passengers will be able to purchase tickets to Beijing, with a connection in Madrid's Barajas International Airport. There, they will have the services and support of Brazilian TAM personnel to make connections on flights operated by Air China, which will use the code JJ to Beijing.

From the Chinese capital to here, Air China passengers will have the same benefits in creating their itineraries, also making a connection in the Spanish capital for our direct flight to Sao Paulo.

For TAM, the partnership is very strategic. "This is the first agreement we have made with an Asian company, a fact made more significant by being made with a company that has such an extensive network and high service standard as Air China, our Star Alliance partner," states Paulo Castello Branco, TAM's Commercial and Planning Vice President.

"TAM is a new member of the Star Alliance. We are happy to establish this partnership with them, which lets the passengers travel more comfortably with our own operations or with codeshare partners," says Zhang Lan, Air China's Vice President.
