China Southern Airlines opens three new markets

Officials and China Southern Airlines staff attend the Sanya – London Heathrow route launch in China  on 12 July. The twice-weekly service is operated by the SkyTeam carrier’s A330-200 fleet on Thursdays and Sundays.

  • China Southern Airlines continued its international expansion this week with three new routes: Guangzhou (CAN) to Rome Fiumicino (FCO) three times per week, commencing 13 July; Sanya (SYX) – London Heathrow (LHR) twice-weekly on Thursdays and Sundays from 12 July; and Shenzhen (SZX) – Singapore (SIN) flown on a daily basis from 13 July. These city pairs are currently operated year round using the SkyTeam carrier’s 787, A330-200 and A321 fleets respectively. According to OAG schedules data, there are no incumbent carriers on the Fiumicino and Heathrow routes. However, three competitors exist on the Shenzhen – Singapore route: Scoot, operating five times weekly, Shenzhen Airlines with a double-daily service and SilkAir with a daily service.
