China Southern Airlines increases frequency between Heathrow and Guangzhou
Apr 04, 2017: China Southern Airlines has confirmed a second daily departure between Heathrow and Guangzhou starting June 1, 2017.
The airline’s twice daily service, the only direct connection between the UK and southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, is strategically important for a global, outward looking Britain.
The addition of this new daily service will boost trade capacity to this booming city, by doubling the space for British exports to up to 8,760 metric tonnes a year.
The new service will use a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and will lower transfer times to China Southern Airlines’ network of over 120 destinations in China, Japan & Korea, South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
China Southern Airlines is a member of Sky Team and operates out of Heathrow’s Terminal 4.
John Holland-Kaye, chief executive, Heathrow, said, “We are delighted to welcome the second service of China Southern Airlines to Heathrow and the benefits of increased connectivity to Guangzhou for our passengers and for British business. Direct connections to thriving markets like these are essential to keeping our country a global, outward looking, trading nation.”
Heathrow welcomed 1,151,00 passengers flying to and from Chinese destinations in 2016. This is an increase of 7. 3 percent over the previous year.
