HISTORY: CHINA SOUTHERN AIRLINES is an airline headquartered in Baiyun District, Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China. Established on 1 July 1988 following the restructuring of the Civil Aviation Administration of China that acquired and merged a number of domestic airlines, the airline became one of China's "Big Three" airlines (alongside Air China and China Eastern Airlines), the world's fourth-largest airline measured by passengers carried and Asia's largest airline in fleet size, revenue and passengers carried. Air China was established and commenced operations on 1 July 1988 as a result of the Chinese government's decision in late 1987 to split the operating divisions of Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) into six separate airlines:

AIR CHINA (which inherited the IATA and ICAO code of the original CAAC)

CHINA SOUTHWEST AIRLINES (merged with Air China in 2002, originally based in Chengdu)

CHINA EASTERN AIRLINES (based in Shanghai)

CHINA NORTHWEST AIRLINES (merged with China Eastern in 2002, originally based in Xi'an)

CHINA SOUTHERN AIRLINES (based in Guangzhou)

CHINA NORTHERN AIRLINES (merged with China Southern in 2003, originally based in Shenyang)
