China Southern Airlines Launches Daily Dreamliner

The next chapter of China Southern Airlines' (CZ) success story at YVR began yesterday with the arrival of its Boeing 787 – the first Dreamliner to operate daily service to YVR and the only one in Canada to offer passengers an exclusive First Class experience.

The celebrations included the traditional aircraft water arch welcome, a gate greeting from RCMP in red serge, representatives from both provincial and federal  governments and  many special guests on hand to see this revolutionary aircraft touch down at YVR. We were lucky to have fantastic weather for this inaugural, and the striking China Southern livery made for some incredible photographs.

Since its first service to YVR in 2011, CZ has continued to grow its operations at YVR, boosting initial service from three flights per week to daily service in less than two years.

A highlight of CZ’s new Dreamliner service is its luxurious First Class experience, made available to just four passengers who will  enjoy cocoon seats, each 69 centimetres wide, with a built-in 17-inch TV screen and the ability to convert into a fully-flat bed just shy of two metres long. This exclusive experience complements the 24 Business Class and 200 Economy Class seats configured on CZ's revolutionary Dreamliner.

The arrival of the daily China Southern Dreamliner makes two carriers in 2014 to debut this revolutionary aircraft at YVR, and we expect even more as the  Year of the Dreamliner continues at Vancouver International Airport.

    The popularity of China Southern Airlines have grown tremendously in the past few years. The main reason behind its success is the new and improved features incorporated by the China Southern Airlines.
