China Southern Airlines, Asia’s largest airline, will double its daily departures from London Heathrow to Guangzhou from 1 June 2017.
Introduced in response to the popularity of the route, the new daily service will be serviced by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, an aircraft acclaimed for its fuel efficiency, spacious interior and lightweight construction. Dreamliners have also proven popular with travellers for their lighting and environmental systems that minimise jet lag – a welcome feature for this eleven and a half hour journey.
The year-round service currently operates once per day from Heathrow’s Terminal 4. The later departure time of the new service, also from Terminal 4, will provide shorter transfer times to many of the airline’s network of over 120 destinations in China, Japan & Korea, South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand from their Guangzhou hub.
Nick Newman, Commercial Manager for UK & Ireland, said: “Our mission is to make diverse destinations like China more accessible for UK travellers, so we’re thrilled to be able to add a second daily flight from London to Guangzhou.
The new flight schedule will operate at the following times:
CZ604: Departs London Heathrow 12.35, arrives at Guangzhou 07.10
CZ304: Departs London Heathrow 22.35, arrives Guangzhou 17.05
CZ603: Departs Guangzhou 00.55, arrives London Heathrow 06.35
CZ303: Departs Guangzhou 09.30, arrives London Heathrow 15.05
