"The 2010 Asian Games will attract a large number of foreign visitors to Guangzhou, which is the global headquarters for China Southern. It is our goal that all China Southern cabin crew and ground customer service personnel can speak and communicate fluently in English. This will help us to strengthen our overall services to our customers and position China Southern as the first choice for international travel to and from China. English language fluency allows us to build a truly international airline."
- China Southern Airlines Party Secretary Zhang Zi Fang
