Seat Selection

Standard advanced seat selection is included.

Long Layovers

Some routes may require an overnight layover in a connecting city in China, which would most likely be the main hub in Guangzhou (CAN). If this is the case, think of it as a 2-for-1 opportunity, because China Southern offers free accommodation for layovers ranging from 8 to 48 hours.
