china-eastern-airlinesChina Southern Airlines will provide daily flights to Christchurch over the summer. A year after appearing in Christchurch skies, China Southern Airlines has announced 50 per cent more flights over the summer.


The airline will increase its service from three to five times a week from December 12, rising to daily flights between January and mid February.


Justin Watson, Christchurch Airport’s chief aeronautical and commercial officer, said that the regions of the South Island have been flying in formation in the China market for the past two years, working together to achieve the commencement of the direct service last December.


These extra flights are a response to the awesome effort by the regional tourism organisations and businesses of the South Island, which are punching above their weight in their efforts to be great hosts to increasing numbers of Chinese visitors.


The extra flights have been announced a few days ahead of the first anniversary of China Southern’s direct service to Christchurch. The airline, which is the only mainland Chinese carrier flying to Christchurch, deploys its modern Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft on the route.
