China Southern Airlines is planning to launch an international roundtrip air route between Guangzhou, Brisbane, and Auckland from November 3, 2010.
This will be the third China to Australia route for China Southern, and the first route to New Zealand to be launched by a Chinese airline.
Three flights are arranged each week for this route. Flight CZ381 will depart Guangzhou at 23:50 local time on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, will arrive at Brisbane at 10:50, take off after two hours and finally get to Auckland at 19:00 local time. The return flight CZ382 will operate on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. It will leave Auckland at 21:00 local time, get to Brisbane at 22:00 and arrive at Guangzhou at 07:00 local time.
Travelers can take flights from Beijing, Shanghai, Changchun, Changsha, Chengdu, Dalian and many other destinations via China Southern's air route network to Guangzhou and then fly to Brisbane and Auckland.
China Southern also operates other two air routes to Australia, the Guangzhou to Sydney and Guangzhou to Melbourne routes.
