China Southern Airlines (NYSE:ZNH) has said that it will offer a brand new standard of service on Australia-China flights from 1 November.

The service between the two countries will reportedly be operated with new Airbus A330-200 aircraft and cocoon-style flat bed seats in Premium Business Class. The airline said that it will progressively introduce the 264-seat, dual-class A330s on its Melbourne-Sydney-Guangzhou and Sydney-Guangzhou routes as part of a continuing programme of improvement throughout its network.

With the Airbus A330, China Southern will also introduce the new Premium Business Class look in Australia, with 24 Minipod flat bed seats from B/E Aerospace Inc (Nasdaq:BEAV). The flat bed seat has won four design awards and was a nominee for Flight International's 2004 Aerospace Industry Award.
