The smooth land­ing of the flight CZ6202 in Harbin on Oct 12 sig­ni­fied that the Hei­longjiang Branch of China South­ern Air­lines has main­tained a flaw­less safety record for 35 years.

In the last three- and- a- half decades, the branch has been re­spon­si­ble for more than 700,000 hours of safe flights with­out a sin­gle air ac­ci­dent.

In 2013, it achieved 60,000 hours of flight safety.

Ac­cord­ing to the branch com­pany, safety is the key to its de­vel­op­ment.

For sev­eral decades, suc­ces­sive gen­er­a­tions of man­age­ment have in­sisted on pri­or­i­tiz­ing safety man­age­ment to en­sure its steady and sus­tain­able growth, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany.

The com­pany has also played an im­por­tant role in boost­ing lo­cal eco­nomic growth and fa­cil­i­tat­ing trade and peo­ple- to- peo­ple ex­changes be­tween China and coun­tries in the North­east Asia re­gion.

At present, the Hei­longjiang branch has two op­er­at­ing bases in Harbin and Daqing, with a fleet con­sist­ing of 13 A320s, five A319s and one A321.

It has flights to 50 Chi­nese cities and re­gions in­clud­ing Bei­jing, Shang­hai, Hong Kong and Tai­wan, as well as a dozen in­ter­na­tional cities such as Khabarovsk and Vladi­vos­tok of Rus­sia, Ni­igata and Osaka of Ja­pan, Seoul of South Korea and Bangkok of Thai­land.

In 2013, the com­pany has trans­ported 30,000 tons of cargo and 2.5 mil­lion pas­sen­gers.
