China Southern Adds Melbourne to its Festival Line-up

September 25, 2013 Corporate No Comments Email Email

China Southern Airlines has become Leadership Partner and Official Airline of the annual Melbourne Festival, building on its unofficial role as Australia’s ‘Festival Airline’.

“We are delighted to be a key supporter of the arts in Melbourne and we are very pleased to commit to this iconic festival for the next three years, until 2015,” said China Southern Regional General Manager Australia/New Zealand Henry He.

“It is something we have done in Sydney with Sydney Festival and in Perth with the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.”

Mr He said the airline’s Melbourne Festival role would begin with the China Southern Sidney Myer Music Bowl annual concert on the Festival’s opening night of Saturday, October 12 and conclude with two outstanding dance programs – 6000 miles away and PUSH – at Her Majesty’s Theatre on the closing weekend of October 23-27.

Headline act at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl will be the acclaimed indigenous singer-songwriter Geoffrey Gurrumal Yunupingu, while the French-born star of London’s Royal Ballet, Sylvie Guillem, will have top billing at Her Majesty’s.

“The timing of our Melbourne Festival sponsorship is perfect because October  marks the start of double daily services from Guangzhou to Melbourne on our new Airbus A330-300 airliner, offering fully flat seats in Business Class and personal TVs throughout.

“We hope festival goers will enjoy these stunning shows and in the process learn a little more about China Southern so that we can get to carry them on their next overseas flights on our celebrated new Canton Route to China and the rest of the world,” Mr He added.
