Starting June 3, 2009, China Southern Airlines (CSA) Company Limited and Russia's Aeroflot Russian Airlines will open a code sharing flight on the Moscow-Guangzhou route that is operated by Aeroflot Russian Airlines.

This is the second cooperative code sharing flight for the two airlines following their cooperation on the Urumqi-Moscow air route on October 26, 2008.

Code sharing is the practice of operating a flight number or code for one airlines' flight on a plane of another airline company. Through code sharing cooperation, airline companies can improve their air route networks and increase marketing opportunities, without injecting large costs.

At the same time, passengers can enjoy more convenient and diverse services, such as more choices of flights and schedules, integrated connecting-flight services, and sharing of frequent flyer passenger plans and lounges.

On October 26, 2008, China Southern Airlines and Aeroflot Russian Airlines realized code sharing operations for the Urumqi-Moscow air route. In order to further improve the China-Russia air route network and promote the development of the China-Russia airline market, the two companies reached an agreement to begin a code sharing cooperation on the Moscow-Guangzhou air route.

According to plans, code sharing for this flight will be officially put into effect when Aeroflot Russian Airlines opens the air route on June 3, 2009, and three flights will be operated each week.

China Southern Airlines is China's airline company which owns the largest number of cargo planes with the largest passenger carrying capacity, and whose air route network covers the largest area in China.

Since it officially joined the SkyTeam Alliance on November 15, 2007, it has greatly expanded its marketing network and effectively enhanced its competitive capacity in the airline market through developing a wide variety of products with other allied airline companies.
