2001 banner year for China Southern Airlines

China Southern Airlines announced that it has retained its market position as the largest airline in China with a banner year in 2001. The airline said it operated 365,000 flight hours, with more than 208,000 takeoffs/landings, carried 19 million passengers and 396,000 tons of cargo in 2001.

"The impact of the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York City reverberated-like cascading waves in a pond-around the world and China was no less effected by the impact," said Wang Changshun, President of China Southern Airlines.

"As global markets became ever more competitive for civil aviation business, China Southern-anchored by its rock-solid management team-stayed the course and rode out the turbulence."

China's largest airline has the largest fleet with 110 aircraft, 341 routes and the most flights and annual passengers carried.

In July 2001, China Southern Airlines completed its historic Polar Test Flight from New York's JFK International Airport, via the North Pole, to Beijing and became the first airline in the world to chart a Trans-arctic flight using a twin engine jet aircraft Boeing 777.

In October 2001, China Southern reached the 1 million-hour mark of safe flight operations using its fleet of Boeing 757 aircraft and the RB211-535E4 engine-the seventh airline in the world to meet this landmark.

The airlines' passenger/cargo marketing brands, specifically Business 2000, Warm Heart 9000, Cargo 5000, CSN Transit and Cargo Transit are universally recognized by its customers, capturing top marketing honors and accolades.

China Southern aggressively expanded its international flight operations using cooperative code-share partnerships with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Garuda Indonesia.

With more than 700,000 members, The Sky Pearl Club continued its pace as the fastest growing frequent flyer program in China as it welcomed Marriott International to its list of corporate FFP partners. Special airport Sky Pearl Club service centers were opened in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai offering a full range of personalized services.

The airline's e-commerce programs continued to grow at a fevered pace, expanding to eight domestic Chinese cities including Guangzhou, Shenzhen Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu.

"China Southern Airlines will, as always, focus on 'the vision'... creating exciting new travel opportunities for our customers, high revenues for our shareholders and do our part to position China as a leader in the family of nations," said Wang.

China Southern Airlines (www.cs-air.com/en) connects more than 80 cities around the globe. In February, the airline announced it will launch daily Boeing 777 service between Guangzhou and Tokyo on April 19. The new daily route will use the Boeing 777B and marks the carrier's third service to Japan. The other services are Guangzhou-Fukuoka and, also starting April 19, the Guangzhou-Osaka operations will become a daily service.
