Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 3 July 2009

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 - to Guangzhou.

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 China.
