With the ongoing A330 hype I would like to remake this feature request for this beautiful bird!

Why we need this livery

1.Multi Purpose. As you can see from the table above, many of the routes are within 3h which belong to short haul. This again proves that not only is A330 capable of doing long hauls, but also short ones.

2.Fleet Diversity. A330 and B77W are two of the most frequently used wide-body aircraft in China. Now that we missed out the 77W, we can’t miss the A330, as this aircraft will sure to open more route possibilities and increase the diversity of the fleet, which is what IF is now striving for.

3.Ignored High Demand. This livery is among the most requested liveries in our domestic forums. Yet the old feature request only got 2 vote in 5 YEAR’s time. It certainly deserves more attention. That’s why I’m remaking this request to voice for many Chinese players who are not in IFC for now.

Thanks for reading and feel free to vote if you like it!

This is a great livery! I’m out of votes, but you have my support!

I entered the cockpit of B-6501 in 2019 and chatted with the pilot for a while. Unfortunately, 6501 is ready to return the rent and catch up with COVID-19,So 6501 became a cargo plane. China Southern Airlines is my favorite airline, supporting 330! !

I think B8870 is more beautiful than B6501

I have flown with China Southern’s A330 for so many times!
Definitely got my vote here! I think the livery suits the aircraft and China Southern has more than 40 A330s in their fleet. It should be included!

Good to have this iconic livery as the 787-8 is the only plane to feature the China Southern livery.
