China Southern Airlines to add 486 flights to Hainan for CNY travel rush
During the Spring Festival travel peak, China Southern Airlines will add more than 5400 flights in 41 domestic cities, of which 486 flights will fly to Hainan, accounting for more than 9% of the added flights.
On Jan.25 alone, about 552 flights departed from and arrived at Sanya Phoenix International Airport and Haikou Meilan International Airport with a total passenger throughput of 79,200, up 13.9% and 20.2% from the previous month.
