China Southern’s two B777-200Fs arrive

CHINA SOUTHERN AIRLINE’S fleet expansion plan continues with the delivery of two Boeing 777-200 freighters, bringing its B777F total to eight. 
“The aircraft is well known for its operation economics, long-range capacity and fuel efficiency. The B777F fleet will sharpen China Southern’s competitive advantage in its long-haul routes to America and Europe,” says a company statement.  
Later this month, the Asian carrier intends to launch its freighters on new routes, such as Guangzhou (China)-Hangzhou (China)-Los Angeles (US)-Guangzhou. It also plans to increase the frequency of existing services to America, Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Frankfurt (Germany). 
China Southern’s freighter network covers 12 international stations including 13 routes to Chicago, Los Angeles, Vancouver (Canada), Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Vienna (Austria), Guangzhou, Pudong, Zhengzhou, Qingdao, Chongqing and Hangzhou in China.
