Our partnership with China Southern Airlines

China Southern Airlines is the largest airline in China and a leading carrier to 224 destinations in 40 countries. When you fly on China Southern, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® bonus miles when you fly on China Southern Airlines marketed and operated flights and China Southern codeshare flights operated by American Airlines.

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket.

Flights marketed by China Southern Airlines (booked as a CZ flight number) are not eligible to earn Loyalty Points.
