China Southern Airlines has spoken of its need to raise awareness of the airline across the Tasman as its recently appointed New Zealand general manager set his sights on growth.

Mike Ma, who took over from Henry Dai at the end of last year, said the carrier must earn the trust of the Kiwi public if sales are to increase.

"We have only been in New Zealand less than two years and our brand must become much better known and trusted by New Zealand people," Ma said.

To achieve that, the airline much forge closer ties with the government, travel agents, airports and chambers of commerce, he said.

Henry He, China Southern's regional general manager for Australia and NZ, said Dai had laid the foundations for growth,.

"Henry managed to get our latest A330 200 aircraft with full layback seats in business and personal TVs throughout on the route, and last December New Zealand was one of the first ports to be visited by one of our new A380 superjumbos," He said. "Not even in Australia have we kicked these goals although we start flying the new A330s into Brisbane and Perth next month and we would really like to get one of the 10 new 787 Dreamliners that China Southern has on order with Boeing in Seattle."
