World’s 4th largest airline hands first UK PR brief to Rooster following successful digital sales campaigns.
China Southern Airlines, Asia’s largest airline, has appointed award-winning agency Rooster PR as its first ever UK public relations agency following successful digital and social media campaigns which saw seasonal bookings double.
In its new, extended PR remit, Rooster will promote the airline’s 4-star service and lower transfer times to destinations across China, Southeast Asia, Australia & New Zealand, and the carrier’s new, twice-daily service from Heathrow to Guangzhou launching on 1st June 2017.

Nick Newman, Commercial Manager for UK & Ireland, said: “Rooster’s digital activity has had an immediate positive impact on our UK sales and we’re delighted to have them on-board as our PR agency as we continue to expand in the UK market. We’ve got a number of big announcements coming up and are confident we have the right agency to help us realise our ambitions in the UK.”
