BEIJING - China Southern Airlines, the country's largest carrier by passenger traffic, said it will launch more routes linking south China with Asia and north America by the end of this year.

A new flight between Shenzhen in South China's Guangdong province and Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia will begin on September 21.

On December 7, flights between Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong and Toronto in Canada will also be launched. On December 12, flights between Guangzhou and the southern Australian city of Adelaide will also start operation. It will be the first direct flight between Chinese mainland and Adelaide.

Since August, the company had increased its flights between Guangzhou and major cities in north America to meet rising travel demand during the high-summer vacation season.
