The carrier was the first in the world to operate the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 aircraft, and its fleet consists of many Airbus and Boeing models. Its fleet is ranked the 5th in the world and 1st in Asia in terms of fleet size.
One of the first services that passengers might make use of would be the China Southern online check in facility. An SMS check-in is another option to help travelers save waiting time at the airport. You can also perform a lot of other actions online such as reserving your seat, verifying your ticket using the China Southern PNR status and checking the status of your flight.
The airline favors the Airbus A380 not just due to the increased passenger capacity, but also because it is an environment-friendly aircraft with efficient engines and a high degree of fuel efficiency; it would be accurate to call it a “green” aircraft. Once on board, passengers can enjoy traditional varieties of Cantonese and Royal cuisine, and also learn about Chinese tea culture and etiquette. To keep you occupied during the flight, the on-board entertainment provides the latest movies, TV and audio.
