The airline is also offering add-on fares within China, with First and Business Class specials available on 32 routes from Guangzhou, and Economy Class deals to almost 70 destinations.

China Southern Airlines presently offers daily flights from Sydney to Guangzhou, three of these originating in Melbourne. Flights from Australia are operated with new Airbus A330-200 aircraft, seating 264 passengers in a dual-class cabin 24 in Premium Business Class and 240 in Economy Class.

Premium Business Class features 24 Minipod flat bed seats, each 1.9 metres long. Each is encased in a special privacy shell, and equipped with a personal 10.4 inch LCD video screen and an individual directional LED reading light with full intermediate dimming.
