China Xinjiang Airlines(XO
) has been absorbed into China Southern Airlines(CZ) considering Xinjiang is supposed to be an "autonomous" province along with Tibet, they should have been allowed to retain their own airline, but I guess China wants to integrate the region more, this way they now have a major airline representing them from Urumqi which is good, even Air China have launched operations to the city with their 777s.
have gained the following from XO
, all served from Urumqi with 757s:
Russia (Moscow, Novosibirsk)
Two other destinations that were served by XO
, Ekatrinburg in Russia and Uzbekistan (Tashkent) were axed.
