Hi, When I visited CAN (Guangzhou) in March, I noticed 2 airlines there who I would not expect to see there at all. These 2 airlines are Ethiopean Airlines ( 767 ET-ALL) and Kenya Airways (767, 5Y-KQZ). Does anybody know why they fly there when I would of thought SIN, HKG, NRT and BKK are more important Far East destinations. Saying that I very impressed with CAN's New airport. From Timetable.

Glad you were impressed with the new airport at Guangzhou  Smile

Ethiopean Airlines (ET) serve CAN 4x weekly via BKK using the 767-300  Smile

Kenya Airways (KQ) serve CAN 4x weekly via DXB also using the 767-300  Smile

I beleive KQ used to serve PVG, but insted moved to CAN  Smile

Lots of Merchants from all over Africa go to CAN. I know ET flights are always full to Asia. Both ET and KQ serve CAN, HKG and BKK. ET also serves PEK.

I have been on one last June and the 763 was full. You can fairly say that its one of their trunk route. ET has also traffic right between BKK and CAN and I rememebr counting more that 20 paxs embarking and disembarking to/from these points. Almost all passengers are West African traders and I hear that ET gets a lot of money from excess baggage.

Cheers!

ET originally started serving Hong Kong, and it was obvious that merchants were not stopping there, as they were hopping on a train bound for Guangzhou. Enter Guangzhou, now served 4x per week, while HKG is served 3x per week.

KQ's service is odd - via Dubai? How many local passengers are there? I can't imagine many.

Keep in mind that China is already a large and still growing investor in African natural resources. Given that CAN has connections from all over Chine and East Asia, it is a natural gateway destination even though it does not receive the attention that Beijing of Shanghai receive.

True, but CAN is really where manufacturing is, and is what is driving African merchants to that city. Policy making, of course, is at Beijing.
