China Southern Airlines has moved to secure it position as the largest airline operating in southern China’s Guangxi region, with the launch of more international services from the capital Nanning to Thailand and South Korea.

On 10 February 2015, China Southern will launch three weekly flights from Nanning’s Wuxu International Airport to the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. Flights will run every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Also in February 2015, China Southern will increase the frequency of its flights from Nanning to Bangkok and Seoul. The Bangkok service will be upgraded to daily flight, from current three weekly flights, while the Seoul route will be increased to three flights per week.

Guangzhou-based China Southern is currently the biggest airline at Wuxu International Airport, but the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) recently gave its permission for the launch of Beibu Gulf Airlines – a new Nanning-based carrier that will be part-owned by Tianjin Airlines, one of China Southern’s biggest rivals in the region.
