China Southern Airlines will increase the flights for Dhaka-Guangzhou route from once a week to three times a week from Oct. 11, according to the company's source on Monday.

The flights from Guangzhou to Dhaka are scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, and those from Dhaka to Guangzhou on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Gao Bo, China Southern Airlines representative in Bangladesh, told Xinhua.

Since China Southern Airlines inaugurated Dhaka-Guangzhou route on Aug. 2 this year, it has been providing the lowest price for one return ticket at 150 U.S. dollars (not including tax).

Gao said they will increase the prices after they fly three flights per week.

"The lowest price will be 300 U.S. dollars (not including tax) for one return ticket," he said.

Gao said the increasing of flights will attract more Bangladeshi passengers to choose Southern Airlines to go to Guangzhou or southern China.

The company has started selling the tickets for the new schedule. "Around 70 percent of the tickets on Oct. 11 have been sold, it is a good sign," Gao said.

Gao said the Canton Autumn Fair is going to be held. "The fair will bring us good business opportunities," he said.

China Southern Airlines is the second airlines of China in Bangladesh after China Eastern Airlines. In 2005, China Eastern Airlines launched Dhaka-Kunming flight.
