China Southern is increasing its presence in Melbourne with its latest Airbus aircraft offering more capacity between Guangzhou and the Victorian capital as well as a return to double daily peak season services.

From October 26, the airline will begin flying its modern A330-300 aircraft with fully flat beds up front and personal seatback screens throughout on the morning and evening services from A330-300 on tarmacMelbourne to Guangzhou.

With 275 seats, the new A330-300 can carry more than 100 additional passengers on the busy twice daily Guangzhou route, which will see the airline lift its weekly capacity by more than 1600 seats over summer.

Melbourne’s new airliners complete a regional upgrade which has seen all Australian ports replaced with new A330s and from October 28, China Southern’s A380 will begin operating between Sydney and Guangzhou and Boeing 787 Dreamliners will service the Auckland route.

China Southern Regional General Manager Australia New Zealand Henry He said it was a good time for Victorians to try China Southern’s Canton Route to China and beyond.

“This is a really exciting time for China Southern in Australia and we’re thrilled to have completed this overhaul of our aircraft to ensure that each and every one of our Australian guests has a A330-300 flat bedcomfortable and pleasant flight with us,” Mr He said.

“We’re celebrating with some great Spring deals which we hope will encourage more Victorians to fly with us and experience the new and improved China Southern product.”
