Guangdong Airport Authority signed a memorandum of cooperation on Sept 16 at the 24th World Route Development Forum with seven airlines including China Southern Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines and Siberia Airlines.
In the future, they are hoping to jointly open a number of high-quality international routes to cities such Madrid in Spain, Milan in Italy, St. Petersburg in Russia and Islamabad in Pakistan.
After the opening ceremony of the forum, a raft of activities were organized to showcase Cantonese food, music, culture and local intangible cultural heritages such as olive kernel carving, Guangxiu embroidery and Guangcai ceramics. The activities were held to promote Guangzhou to the participants.
