China Southern Airlines is launching its fifth Australian route this December, opening up Queensland’s tropical north to UK passengers.
The new route will fly from Heathrow to Cairns, three times per week, via Guangzhou, from 13 December 2017 with fares from £578 return, including all taxes.
“Opening up Far North Queensland to British travellers not only gives them the opportunity to explore the vast country further but also makes getting from the North to the South of Australia even more accessible” said Nick Newman, commercial manager for China Southern Airlines, UK & Ireland.
He added: “We already operate flights to the core four destinations along the East Coast, so by adding Cairns to our portfolio, we can give passengers scope to discover the entire East side without having to track back across covered ground.”
Cairns is the airlines’ fifth addition to its Australian portfolio, with existing routes flying to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The new flight schedule will operate at the following times:
CZ333: Departs Guangzhou 22.10 on Mon/Wed/Fri, arrives Cairns 07.40+1
CZ334: Departs Cairns 09.40 on Tues/Thur/Sat, arrives Guangzhou 15.15
Flights operate between London Heathrow and Guanzhou twice daily:
CZ604: Departs London Heathrow 12.35, arrives at Guangzhou 07.10
CZ304: Departs London Heathrow 22.35, arrives Guangzhou 17.05
CZ603: Departs Guangzhou 00.55, arrives London Heathrow 06.35
CZ303: Departs Guangzhou 09.30, arrives London Heathrow 15.05
