China Southern and guests enjoy the Ferrython
By admin

China Southern Airlines joined in on the Sydney Festival annual Australia Day Ferrython on Sydney Harbour this year with its own ferry entitled Friendship.

The ferry was adorned in colourful China Southern banners and signs with almost 200 travel industry, media and CZ Staff onboard. Sparkling wine and chants were plentiful with agents shouting ‘Jai you!’, which in Mandarin translates to ‘fill up the engine with gas and go!’

Even though Friendship didn’t win the Ferrython, the staff onboard shared an exciting Australia Day experience.

Congratulations are in order for newcomers NRMA and The Star who were the stars of the race.

Check out the photos of China Southern Airlines sharing in the festivities:
