On 15 May, the Chinese carrier will launch twice weekly services (Mondays and Fridays) to Shizuoka from Nanning, the capital of southern China’s Guangxi region.

Then in June it will add two weekly flights from both Changsha and Zhengzhou, the respective capitals of Hunan and Henan provinces. And the airline will also increase the frequency of its existing Wuhan-Shizuoka route, to three weekly flights.

All the new routes will be operated by a single-aisle Boeing 737 aircraft.

China Southern said it expects to carry more than 100,000 passengers per year on the four routes to Shizuoka, which lies between Tokyo and Nagoya.

Also this month, Air China will launch another route to Tokyo. On 15 May, the airline will start flying from Tianjin to the Japanese capital, via the Chinese port city of Dalian.

The new route will operate four times a week (Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sunday) using a B737.
