China Southern is set to double its daily service between London Heathrow and Guangzhou.

From June 1, the airline will operate an additional year-round flight, operated by a B787 from Heathrow’s Terminal 4. It will depart earlier than the current service, allowing shorter transfer times for some onward connections.

The new schedule is as follows:

CZ604 – Departs London Heathrow at 1235, arriving in Guangzhou at 0710 the next day
CZ304 – Departs London Heathrow at 2235, arriving in Guangzhou at 1705 the next day
CZ603 – Departs Guangzhou at 0055, arriving at London Heathrow at 0635
CZ303 – Departs Guangzhou at 0930, arriving at London Heathrow at 1505

Commenting on the new service, China Southern’s commercial manager for UK and Ireland, Nick Newman, said:

“Our mission is to make diverse destinations like China more accessible for UK travellers, so we’re thrilled to be able to add a second daily flight from London to Guangzhou.

“The new flight frequency brings our total weekly departures between Western Europe and China to 41 and firmly signifies our continued expansion.”
