China Southern Airlines is adding an Airbus A380 to its ﬂeet as it looks to enhance its share of the international market. The airline is the world’s largest in terms of passenger traﬃc, owing to its dominance of the domestic market. It is now looking to launch a challenge on Cathay Paciﬁc and Singapore Airlines on routes to Europe and America. The airline is set to launch the ﬁrst of ﬁve A380 aircraft next month, making it the seventh airline worldwide to operate the superjumbo ﬂights and the ﬁrst to do so in China. The Guangzhou-based airline has not yet identiﬁed which routes the double-decker aircraft will ﬂ y, but an announcement is due later this week.
