Air China, China Southern, China Eastern, China Airlines y Shangdong Airlines operan colectivamente 42 servicios semanales que conectan cinco ciudades diferentes en China con tres ciudades diferentes en la India.
According to a Civil Aviation Ministry, the talks went fairly well in terms of progressing the conversation in enhanced air connectivity between the two countries.

China Southern contributes to Cambodia's airports receiving more passengers
The operator VINCI Airports, who operates three airports in Cambodia, has reported that 3 million passengers used these airports in the first quarter of 2018, a 26.1% year-on-year increase. At Phnom Penh Airport, the country's capital, this upward trend is even steeper at a staggering 34.5%. The capital’s airport handled 1.4 million passengers, while the increase was mainly attributed to new services introduced by Malindo, Vietjet and Shenzhen Airlines. Chinese carriers such as Spring, China Southern Airlines and Xiamen Airlines all increased services to Phnom Penh.
Local Cambodian start-up airlines, JC International and Lanmei Airlines, may also be responsible for the surge in traffic, as both recently established flights to Singapore and Bangkok. Passenger traffic at Siem Reap airport increased by 17.4%. Travellers from China topped the passenger lists, while domestic travel also expanded. This is part of an ever-growing tourism trend in the country, who saw the number of international travellers visiting the kingdom reaching 5.6 million in 2017, up 11.8% (statistics from the Ministry of Tourism). If predictions are correct, Cambodia should be letting through its immigration over 6.1 million tourists this year.

China Southern Airlines Company (ZNH) CMF Pushes Into Positive Territory
China Southern Airlines Company (ZNH) shares are showing bullish signs as the Chaikin Money Flow or CFI is above the zero line. A positive Chaikin Money Flow indicates that the stock is strong while a negative CMF indicates that the stock is weak. The CMF indicator passing through the zero line (rising above or falling below) may indicate a shift in the overall trend for the equity.The indicator, created by Marc Chaikin, is based on the theory that the strength of the market can be determined by looking at where the price closes compared to its daily range and volume. If the market is strong you will see if closing in the upper half with a high volume. A weak market can be seen if it closes in the lower half of the range on high volume.
Taking a deeper dive into the numbers, China Southern Airlines Company (ZNH) has a 50-day Moving Average of 36.81, the 200-day Moving Average is 35.82, and the 7-day is noted at 36.50. A popular tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a specific period of time. Moving averages can be very useful for identifying peaks and troughs. They may also be used to help the trader figure out proper support and resistance levels for the stock.
Value investors may be scanning the shelves for bargain stocks. They may be looking to spot those shares that haven’t been doing a whole lot and are being generally overlooked by the investing world. Value investors may be searching for stocks with lower price to earnings ratios that possess higher dividend yields. Investors looking for growth stocks may be willing to shell out a little more for a stock that has the possibility of increasing EPS at a quicker pace. Some investors may favor one category of stocks over another, but they may need to find a combination at some point. As markets tend to move in cycles, it may be necessary to align the portfolio to the category that is best positioned to make consistent gains in the future.
Traders may be relying in part on technical stock analysis. China Southern Airlines Company (ZNH) currently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 190.26. Despite the name, CCI can be used on other investment tools such as stocks. The CCI was designed to typically stay within the reading of -100 to +100. Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions. A CCI reading above +100 would imply that the stock is overbought and possibly ready for a correction. On the other hand, a reading of -100 would imply that the stock is oversold and possibly set for a rally.
At the time of writing, the 14-day ADX for China Southern Airlines Company (ZNH) is 22.20. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX value over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available.

China Southern expand into South America and Africa
China Southern Airlines is planning to expand into South America and Africa over the next five years the carrier's Senior Vice President (Marketing) Wu Guoxiang has told the South China Morning Post.
In an interview, Wu said the carrier was looking atJohannesburg O.R. Tambofor its next African destination afterNairobi Jomo Kenyatta, which it currently serves fromGuangzhou2x weekly usingA330-200metal. In South America, China Southern is looking at developing services to points in Brazil and Argentina, he added without mentioning specifics.
China Southern's international operations currently focus on East Asia, Oceania, Europe, and North America (the United States and Canada only). Direct flights between China and Africa and between China and South America are currently dominated by non-Chinese carriers although flag carrierAir China(CA,Beijing Capital) has attempted to gain a foothold through the launch of its own services fromBeijing Capital to each ofJohannesburg O.R. Tambo and São Paulo Guarulhos(viaMadrid Barajas).
As it stands, Africa and South America are becoming increasingly attractive destinations for Chinese capital given China's thirst for natural resources and need for new export markets.
According to an Ernst & Young (EY) Africa Attractiveness report published last month, since 2005, China has invested in 293 FDI projects in Africa, resulting in an investment outlay of USD66.4 billion. Aside from general trade and Foreign Direct Investments, Chinese companies and state-related entities have been involved in both financing and building numerous infrastructure projects across Africa including ports, roads, railways, dams, telecom networks, power stations, and airports. The primary benefactors of Chinese capital have been Egypt, Nigeria, Algeria, South Africa, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Angola, Niger, Zambia, and Morocco.
In Latin America and the Caribbean, China is looking to realize USD500 billion in trade and USD250 billion in investment by 2025. In Brazil the focus has been primarily on infrastructural projects - the country's massive rail network and its untapped potential in particular. Beijing has similar interests in Argentina where in 2014, it agreed to provide Argentina with over USD20 billion in loans to finance numerous infrastructure projects, including new railway lines and hydropower dams. Last month, Buenos Aires signed a framework agreement with the China Development Bank (CDB) for the rehabilitation of the Belgrano Cargas (II) railway.
Under the deal, the CDB bank will finance the acquisition of railway equipment, works and services for a narrow-gauge train with a total extension of 1,400 km. The Belgrano Cargas (II) initiative connects the Provinces of Argentina's so-called Mesopotamia area.
