A Hainan Airlines Co Ltd airplane at Haikou Meilan International Airport in Hainan province. China’s high-speed rail service has had a broad, adverse effect on airlines’ domestic business, according to experts.
After two years of competing with high-speed rail lines, Chinese airlines are trying to find a mutually beneficial solution for both sides, People’s Daily reported.

On Monday, Hainan Airlines Co Ltd launched a joint operating program with Yuehai Railway Co Ltd, which runs the high-speed rail between Haikou and Sanya in Hainan province.

Passengers can buy high-speed rail tickets from Haikou to Sanya when booking tickets on any Hainan Airlines flight to Haikou.

The rail fares will be the same as those offered directly by railways. The airline will eventually sell tickets to other stops on the high-speed rail route, the newspaper said.
