China Southern Cargo links with Qantas

CHINA Southern Cargo will expand its presence in Oceania thanks to a special prorate agreement (SPA) with Qantas.

At present China Southern Airlines flies from Guangzhou (China) to four destinations in Oceania: Auckland (New Zealand), Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney (all Australia), totalling 27 flights a week.

Connecting with Qantas’ network, China Southern Cargo extends freight destinations to Adelaide, the Gold Coast and Perth in Australia and Christchurch and Wellington in New Zealand.

The interline sectors operated by Qantas can accept general cargo, as well as perishable cargo, which is different from an ordinary SPA arrangement.

With the new agreement the volume of cargo via the Guangzhou hub will increase by five times over the corresponding period last year.
