Pineapple Air Cheap Flights & Promo Fares

Spring Airlines is a low-cost carrier in China, with its main base in the Homeyo Hotel in Changning District, Shanghai. It is the aviation subsidiary of Shanghai Spring International Travel Service and China's only no frills airline. The colloquial name of the airline is 春秋航空 (Chūnqiū Hángkōng), meaning Spring and Autumn Airlines, but the company decided for their English name to be simply Spring Airlines.

Spring Airlines was established in 2004, but did not acquire its first aircraft, an Airbus A320, until July 12, 2005. It began its operations on July 18, 2005 with a flight between Shanghai and Yantai. In an effort to keep operating costs low (to, in effect, keep the ticket prices low), the airline sells its tickets exclusively from its website, a few designated ticket offices, and bypassing travel agents.

Why fly with Spring Airlines

Baggage Allowance & Fees

Each passenger is allowed one free carry-on luggage that does not exceed the weight of seven kg and the measurement of 20 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm for domestic flights. For regional and international flights, maximum total baggage allowed for checked and carry-on is 15 kg. Otherwise, baggage allowance can be purchased online or through the Customer Service Hotline in advance, at least six hours prior to departure for domestic flights and 12 hours prior to departure for international flights. Passengers can select between 10 to 40 kg of additional baggage. This is to ensure that there is enough space in the aircraft to accommodate the excess luggage.

Inflight Food

Spring Airlines is a budget airline, meaning it has to cut down certain costs in order to provide low-cost air travel. In light of this, complementary on-board meals and water is no longer served; passengers may purchase meals and beverages on-board if they wish. For the passenger's convenience, the meals can be pre-ordered up to 36 hours in advance, during or after booking the flight. The set menus can be seen on Spring Airline's website.
