  • China Southern Airlines has grown its presence in Dubai (DXB) with the introduction on 12 January of a thrice-weekly service from Shenzhen (SZX) via Wuhan (WUH). The route will be flown by the SkyTeam carrier’s A330-300s. No other carrier serves either Chinese destination from Dubai. China Southern already serves Dubai from Guangzhou (daily) and Urumqi (with five weekly flights). Other direct flights to China from Dubai include: Air China’s five times weekly flights to Beijing; China Eastern Airlines’ thrice-weekly flights to Kunming; Emirates’ daily flights to Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai; and Sichuan Airlines’ twice-weekly service to Yinchuan. According to the Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), Chinese tourists to Dubai grew by 25% in the first half of 2015 to 241,000. Find out how this route’s FTWA does in this week’s Arch of Triumph competition.
