China Southern plans on secondary Chinese cities to Mexico

Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:51 pm

Link / Source: http://www.chinaaviationdaily.com/news/59/59579.html

The planned new air route linking Guangzhou and Mexico City is anticipated to enhance trade and travel between South China and the Latin American country.

China Southern Airlines plans to launch the Guangzhou-Vancouver-Mexico City route in May, flying Boeing 787 Dreamliners three times a week, said the Guangzhou-based carrier.

Carlos Giralt, consul general of Mexico, who is based in Guangzhou, said: "It will boost exchanges of trade, commerce, people, tourism and many other cultural activities. I hope that we will see more people from Mexico visiting this region and more people from this region visiting Mexico."

"More Chinese will be able to look into Central and Southern America, with Mexico as a hub," he said. A route is currently available covering Shanghai, Tijuana and Mexico City.

Since when is CAN a secondary city? The thread title should be renamed to say that CZ is launching CAN-MEX.

Guangzhou (CAN) is not exactly a secondary Chinese city. In 2015 it was the 17th busiest airport in the world, between Singapore and Jakarta. They got flights to most of the world from there, it's a real big international hub. So now they're adding Mexico? Only logical I think.

Exactly what I was thinking. Only question I have: what intermediate stop will CZ use?

It says Tijuana, that's the smallest city listed with hardly any international traffic so that's kind of odd. Any modern airliner can fly Guangzhou - Mexico city non-stop, so why would they need an intermediate stop?


I thought it was something to do with High and Hot. AM first flew MEX-NRT with a TIJ stop just to refuel. They could fly non-stop one way but not the other.

Strangely enough, Beijing - the Chinese mega city closest to MEX - will have no direct service (unless rumours about Hainan starting the route turn out to be true).

Guangzhou is a major city in China and a fortress hub for CZ. Not a secondary city!

So CZ supposed to codeshare with AM? That could really boost the China-Latin America traffic!
for most people the sky is the limit. for those who love aviation, the sky is home...

The area that CAN serves is the biggest in China and the world, upwards of 30 million people. So much for secondary.

2017 the year where 3 Chinese cities are linked to MEX

Wed Jan 04, 2017 2:48 pm

It might be possible that during the first half of 2017, there will be a total of 3 routes from China to MEX.

AM has been flying for years MEX-TIJ-PVG. If I remember correctly, they will be adding some frequencies during 2017.

Hainan Airlines has also expressed interest and plans to fly PEK-MEX 3x weekly.

Recently, China Aviation Daily reported that CZ is going to start by May a new route from CAN-YVR-MEX 3x weekly also.

This last route will benefit from the end of Canadian visa required for Mexicans. However, despite the announcement made in China Aviation Daily http://www.chinaaviationdaily.com/news/59/59579.html and also reported by AirbusMDCfan viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1351635&p=19271885&hilit=Guangzhou+MEX#p19271885, I still feel this flight does not have all permits approved.

Last year CZ asked Chinese Authorities for rights to fly to Adelaide and Mexico City. They have already announced in their web site the beginning of ADL flights. However MEX service involves a stop in YVR that requieres 5th freedom rights as used by JL in the past. Does any one know if Canada and Mexico have granted such rights?

If everything goes according to plans, PEK, PVG and CAN, the three largest economic powerhouses in China, will have direct services to Mexico. I do believe air services between these two countries will grow, especially if Trump rhetoric vs China and Mexico continues and deepens into actions.
Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

I read that Aeromexico is going to fly the route in 2017?
The message in signature have been removed according to demand.

I think that they (Aeromexico, that is) will launch MEX-ICN (don´t know if it will be via TIJ) this 2017 with a Boeing 787-8. Hainan´s PEK-MEX has been planned since 2012, and in 2014 Cathay Pacific *expressed* some interest on a HKG-XXX-MEX route when it launched it´s cargo flights to GDL and MEX.

Mexico´s interest in Asia (and vice versa) is growing, with Korean, Japanese and Chinese communities growing, specially in central Mexico and the north part of the country. And this goes to other areas in Latin America.

However, I don´t know how will Mexico do this 2017. I´m still confident, but who knows?
