China Southern Airlines has announced a new
Australian schedule for flights between August and October.
Under the new schedule, the airline will operate
five weekly, nonstop flights from Sydney to Guangzhou and increase
to three weekly, one-stop services from Melbourne – via Sydney -
“The new schedules are part of a network wide
strategy to respond positively to reduced demand due to the
economic downturn,” said James Liu, Regional Manager Australia for
China Southern Airlines. “In difficult times these changes
minimize the impact on Australian travellers by maintaining
schedule frequency and choice from both Sydney and Melbourne.”
Flights from Sydney will depart each Monday,
Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday departing mid-morning
with a flight time of just over nine hours.
Melbourne operations will depart every Monday,
Thursday and Saturday morning, arriving – via Sydney - in
Guangzhou, at 5pm.
China Southern Airlines operates modern Airbus
A330-200 aircraft from Australia. From Guangzhou, the airline
offers onward connections to over 100 destinations throughout
