China Southern Airlines is already operating flights between Lahore and Urumqi, the capital of China’s Uygur autonomous region. China Southern is one of the big three airlines in China and it has been operating direct flights to Islamabad from its Urumqi hub.
The airline provides a vital connection for many business travellers as well as students who go for medical education.
China Southern currently flies to Pakistani capital six times a week minus Friday. China Southern will take full advantage of the situation that persists after Shaheen Air international stopped flying on the route.
Interestingly Shaheen Air International flights to Guangzhou were also operated on Thursdays and Sundays.
On the other hand, PIA is still planning and considering to launch Guangzhou flights while Shaheen is missing from the action. It will be interesting to see more traffic towards China as Serene Air also showed interest in launching flights to the Chinese city.
