A new international destination for China Southern Airlines A380s

12 October 2012 News in brief

China Southern Airlines has expanded the route network for its A380 fleet with the start-up of operations on international routes. This achievement was marked by a trans-Pacific flight between China’s Guangzhou Baiyun airport and Los Angeles International in the United States during October. The three initial A380 flights on this route – which also were the first China-U.S. services for China Southern A380s – were a popular ticket for customers, with over 90 per cent of seats sold.
