BEIJING: Foreign airlines will open a number of new routes to Guangzhou, the capital city of southern China’s Guangdong province, from next September, the official Xinhua news agency reported. 

Xinhua said that Air France will open a Paris-Guangzhou air freight route on Sept 3, Finnair will open regular return passenger flights between Guangzhou and Helsinki on Sept 5, and Hong Kong Express will launch Guangzhou-Hong Kong return passenger flights, with five flights scheduled daily from Sept 8. 

Guo Liang-sheng, a scholar at the Guangzhou Civil Aviation Profession Technology Institute, said in the report that China’s civil aviation freight volume was now growing by an average annual growth rate of over 15% – twice the world’s average. He said capacity for freight in China is still seriously inadequate. – AFX-Asia
