China Eastern Airlines was established under the Civil Aviation Administration System of China in 1988. Headquartered in the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, it is China’s second-largest carrier by passenger numbers. Its fleet consists of over 600 aircraft, including Airbus A320, Airbus A330, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing B767, Boeing 737-770, and Boeing 737-800. Recently, China Eastern had its logo altered after 30 years. The new logo retains the swallow image on the red and blue background with the airline’s name written in both Mandarin and English.
China Eastern, together with its codeshare partner airlines, serves over 1052 destinations and 177 nations worldwide. China Eastern Airlines flights serve popular cities in Australia, Europe, Korea, Japan, North America as well as Southeast Asia. Shanghai Pudong International Airport is the main hub; Beijing and Qingdao are secondary hubs.
Depending on the respective China Eastern Airlines flight tickets, baggage policies vary for every class: -
Unaccompanied children traveling on China Eastern Airlines international flights must buy adult fare tickets. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 (provided they are healthy) can avail the status of Unaccompanied Minor, even on international flights. Special employees are assigned to take care of minors from check-in to disembarkment. But the airlines must give its consent before the minor is allowed to travel alone.
China Eastern does not allow pets to travel in the cabin. Dogs and cats can be transported as checked baggage but other heavier animals can be transported as cargo.
China Eastern Airlines flight bookings can be made for a First class, a Business class, and an Economy Class, but short flights have only Business Class and an Economy Class.
China Eastern Airlines flight check-in can be made 24 hours before the flight departure in order to avoid long queues at the airport. Passengers carrying infants will have to check-in at the airport counter only.
The baggage policy and in-flight amenities are subject to alteration by China Eastern without prior notice. As a result, passengers are advised to go through the policies on the airlines’ website before going on a China Eastern flight search.
