Boeing 757-28S B-2853 (msn 29216 / 811) is seen here at Beijing International Airport on July 17th, 2002.

By the end of 2002 it became known that China Xinjiang Airlines would merge into China Southern Airlines. This is part of a process, after years of enormous growth of the aviation industry in China, to restructure the Chinese airline industry and to make the airlines commercially more viable while able to remain a safe operation.
