"Serving all of North America from a central location is an integral part
of our North American consolidation strategy. With this move, we will achieve
economies of scale which will enable us to provide better and more consistent
service for our passengers and our travel agents," says Dr. Zhihang Chi, vice
president and general manager, North America.
Air China announced the consolidation of its operations in North America
on September 8, 2008, when it re-organized its four independent offices in New
York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Vancouver, and aligned them to report to
the newly established North American regional headquarters in Los Angeles.
"Service is our product and is what we strive to improve constantly,"
according to Chi. In addition to the center in Los Angeles, Air China operates
call centers in Beijing for service in China; Tokyo for Japan; and Tallin,
Estonia, for Europe. Call service is provided bilingually with Chinese as the
primary language. In Tallin, the call center can answer customers in five
languages besides Chinese. "In the future we plan to expand our hours of
operation and provide more specialized services," said Chi.
