Air China continues to maintain its core values of providing safe,
convenient, comfortable and customized services to passengers, to offer
seamless travel experiences to passengers from the ticketing on the ground to
the traveling in the air, and to improve its software and hardware to offer
excellent premium services. Furnished in South China style, the new premium
lounge covers an area of 1,000 square meters, becomes the 8th Star Alliance
member’s lounge in China and the largest at Baiyun Airport. The 165-seat
lounge offers a wide range of functions including reception, dressing room,
shower room, sleeping area, food & beverage area, smoking area, entertainment
zone, internet cafe, baggage storage, mobile recharging stations and two VIP
rooms. The launch of this new lounge will provide Star Alliance premium
passengers with more comfortable and convenient travel experiences.

At present, eight Star Alliance member airlines, including Air China,
Shanghai Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, ANA, THAI, Egypt Air and
Asiana Airlines, are operating in Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, offering over 120
domestic flights and 20 international flights to 20 domestic cities and seven
cities abroad. To support Star Alliance initiatives and to follow the service
standards of Star Alliance’s ‘Move under One Roof” initiative, Baiyun Airport
allocated its East Concourse 2 to be exclusive to the Star Alliance member
carrier, Air China, and as such, over 90% of Air China flights to the airport
will be able to dock and connect to the terminal directly, allowing passengers
to board and exit with ease.

In 2010, the Asian Games will be held in Guangzhou. As the national
flagship carrier, Air China will fully honor its social responsibility by
providing high standard and high quality air transport support to the event
with its experience in supporting the Beijing Olympic Games. Air China will
continue to expand cooperation with Guangzhou Baiyun Airport and Star Alliance
members and to improve its services to offer more convenient and better travel
experiences to its customers.
