China Southern flies toRome
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.
