China Southern Airlines connects with Cairns to highlight TNQ

Published on : Monday, July 3, 2017

indexMax Shepherd, heading the Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ) explained that it was extremely satisfying for the destination to have direct China services. He also confirmed that it would give a considerable opportunity to build on the growth in arrivals from the region’s number one source market, China.

 

To quote Shepherd, ‘Established under the Queensland Government’s $33.5 million Advance Queensland: Connecting with Asia initiative, this will be the first direct year-round service from mainland China to Cairns. The China Southern flights will inject $30.8 million in overnight visitor expenditure for the region in the first year and $90 million over three years with three flights per week delivering 33,852 seats on an A330-200 aircraft. The establishment of scheduled services from the world’s largest tourism market will connect new consumers to Australia and create profound opportunities for the Tropical North Queensland industry.’

 

Norris Carter, Cairns Airport CEO explained that this was splendid news for Cairns to receive during the 2017 China Australia Year of Tourism.

 

He said, ‘the service from Guangzhou will provide more convenient access to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef for the world’s largest visitor source market. In addition, it opens up the ‘Canton Route’ for travel between Europe and Cairns.’
