Just one year after its inaugural flight touched down at YVR, China Southern Airlines has increased its service between Guangzhou, China, and Vancouver from three to five flights per week.
The service increase is a testament to the success of Canada’s first and only non-stop flight to Guangzhou which, with its increased service, supports about 80 jobs at the airport and another 150 in B.C. hotels, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions.
This increased service further strengthens Canada’s Asia-Pacific Gateway and will afford Canadians living in British Columbia, and nationally, more choices for international travel to China.
China Southern Airlines is the largest airline in Asia, and Guangzhou Airport, located in Guangdong province on the Pearl River Delta, serves more than 330 million people. Guangdong province’s foreign trade accounts for more than a quarter of China’s total, and it enjoys the country’s highest provincial per capita gross domestic product.
