Some of the flights may have longer layovers in China. In the case you want to extend your visit to Guangzhou, it would also be possible. Departures are available from February to September with blackout dates in summer school vacations.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Skyscanner with your selected flight dates.


As mentioned at the beginning, there is a layover in Guangzhou, China in each direction. These layovers usually last between 2 and 8 hours, but in some cases, they can extend to 12 hours (during the day) or even 26 hours. If an overnight stay is necessary, China Southern provides a hotel with breakfast (5 “Chinese” stars) free of charge. Click here for more information.

For the long-haul flight from Rome to Guangzhou, a Boeing 787 is scheduled, and from Paris, an Airbus A350. Both aircraft feature a lie-flat business class with seats arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration. However, the China Southern Boeing 787-8 has a 2-2-2 configuration. The journey continues for most of the routes in Asia with a Boeing 737, Airbus A320, or A321neo, but some routes, such as Guangzhou – Tokyo or Hanoi, for example, are operated by the Airbus A350 or Boeing 787.

You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on China Southern’s website, but you can find cheaper prices with Skyscanner. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.


This ticket is issued in booking class I. Here are the miles and points you can earn from this deal from Rome to Ho Chi Minh City:
