China South­ern flies toRome

The Press - Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

China South­ern Air­lines’ flight route is ex­pand­ing through­out Europe, in­clud­ing its most re­cent non-stop ser­vice to Rome. The air­line op­er­ates up to 100 flights per week be­tween Guangzhou and Euro­pean des­ti­na­tions that in­clude Paris, Am­s­ter­dam, Rome, Lon­don, Is­tan­bul, Frank­furt, Moscow and Tbil­isi. The new ser­vice to Rome will com­prise stop-over flights via Wuhan, the cap­i­tal of cen­tral China’s Hubei prov­ince, trav­el­ling three times weekly.

A Boe­ing Dream­liner 787-8 will op­er­ate be­tween Guangzhou and Rome, pro­vid­ing first class, busi­ness class and long-haul econ­omy class seats.

The ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of China South­ern Air­lines, Zhang Zi­fang, says: ‘‘China South­ern Air­lines al­ready has a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence in Europe and the Rome ser­vice will help meet de­mand for both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers bound for Italy.

‘‘The launch of flights to and from Rome, to­gether with the re­cently an­nounced in­tro­duc­tion of flights to Christchurch, high­lights our Can­ton Route strat­egy and con­tin­ues to boost Guangzhou’s stand­ing as an in­ter­na­tional avi­a­tion hub.’’

From its hub at Baiyun In­ter­na­tional Air­port in Guangzhou, China South­ern’s Can­ton Route reaches nearly 200 des­ti­na­tions in 35 coun­tries and more than 150 Chi­nese cities.
