China Southern Airlines is taking advantage of new fleet types to push farther into key long-haul markets, as the domestic giant increasingly shifts its focus to its international network.
The carrier is, by any measure, one of the largest in the world. However, for an airline of its size, it has a relatively modest long-haul portfolio. It is working to change that, and next year will take a major step by launching its first route to the New York market. Further expansion to Europe is also on the cards, as is more growth in Australasia—which so far is the airline's most important region outside China.
