The recommencement of services was signified by the departure of Boeing flight No CZ6037 from Guangzhou, which landed at Lahore Airport. Concurrently, Aeroplan flight No CZ6038 left Lahore and arrived in Guangzhou on December 20. The airline has disclosed plans to maintain these flights on a thrice-weekly schedule, specifically on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. The reinstated connectivity is anticipated to provide improved travel options and strengthen economic relations between the two regions.
The revival of the Lahore-Guangzhou route comes after China Southern Airlines reopened air routes from Lahore to Urumqi on June 13. This move reflects the aviation sector’s gradual recovery from the substantial disruptions caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
In the context of ongoing global challenges, the resumption of the Lahore-Guangzhou route by China Southern Airlines is a significant milestone. The renewed operations are expected to facilitate increased passenger mobility, thereby contributing to the resurgence of international trade and commerce.
