China Southern announces new route to Malaysian island of Langkawi

China Southern Airlines has launched a new route to the Malaysian archipelago of Langkawi.

The announcement comes after the airline just recently increased its London Heathrow-Guangzhou service to twice daily, meaning passengers can now take advantage of improved connection times to 30 new destinations across its network.

The new service launched on 11 July 2017.

“Adding Langkawi to our network allows us to open up the unspoilt and lesser-known islands of South East Asia to the international market, giving those intrepid travellers the chance to discover some new hidden gems” says Nick Newman, Commercial Manager for China Southern Airlines, UK & Ireland.

He continued: “The airline continually strives to make the world more accessible to its passengers, boasting a vast network of 200+ destinations across 40+ countries and regions in the world.”

Langkawi is China Southern Airlines’ sixth addition to its South East Asian portfolio, with existing routes connecting flyers to Penang, Phu Quoc, Sabah, Bali and Phuket.
