China Southern Airlines begins thrice-weekly service from Vienna

China Southern Airlines has begun operating three weekly flights from Vienna, Austria to Urumqi and Guangzhou in China.  

The thrice-weekly flights to Urumqui and Guangzhou will be serviced by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  

Han Wensheng, chief operating officer at China Southern Airlines, said: “The successful launch of the Guangzhou-Urumqi-Vienna air service marks a bold and exciting step forward that China Southern has taken to transform itself into an international network-oriented airline.

This new route will significantly promote the cooperation between China and Austria in economy, trade, tourism, culture and other areas. It will also enhance connectivity along the route and facilitate the exchanges and cooperation between China and the surrounding countries of Austria, including Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy.

“All of our efforts serve to push forward the exchanges, development and prosperity of China and Europe, the two of the world’s largest economies and will make significant contributions to the Belt and Road Initiative.”
