China Southern to deploy B787 on Heathrow route

22 Jul 2013 by GrahamSmith

China Southern will deploy a Boeing 787 on its Guangzhou to London Heathrow route later this year.

The Dreamliner will operate the thrice weekly service from October 27.

The following day, China Southern will place a B787 on its daily Guangzhou to Auckland route. This service is scheduled to increase to ten times weekly by February next year.

Both routes are currently operated by an Airbus A330-200.

The Skyteam member launched its London Heathrow route in June last year (see online news, February 2012).
