China Southern Airlines has heavily reduced return economy class airfares between Perth and Europe, the US and China via its Guangzhou hub. The airfares are on sale until midnight on January 31 and include Perth to Los Angeles from $1158 and flights to Paris from $1168. Return airfares to Guangzhou are from $656, to Fuzhou from $693 and to Shanghai and Beijing from $711. Fares are for travel between February 1 and April 30. The airline flies thrice weekly from Perth to Guangzhou and the reduced fares reflect China Southern's desire to increase its profile in WA according to regional general manager Australia New Zealand Henry He.
"We are proud to be the only carrier providing a direct link between Western Australia and mainland China and look forward to welcoming more of our West Australian friends on China Southern to fly our Canton Route to the world," says Mr He.
China Southern Airlines is also sponsoring the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Cottesloe in March this year and flew sculptor Chen Wenling and his sculpture Morning - Childhood back to Perth following its theft at last year's event. Travel agents and 1300 889 628.
