Independent Spring Airlines, the first and largest domestic LCC in China, is planning rapid international expansion with a focus on the 10 Southeast Asia/North Asia markets it already serves.

Spring is also now considering the acquisition of A321neoXLRs, which would give it the range to fly deeper into Southeast Asia from north China, as well as potentially to open new routes to South Asia and Australia.
