Taiyuan Wusu International Airport registers 27 percent passenger increase


Taiyun Wusu International Airport registered a passenger increase of 27 percent in 2007. The Shanxi Civil Aviation Airports Group reported that the airport handled 3.613 million passengers throughput in 2007, up by 27 percent compared to the same period last year. It recorded a yearly passenger increase of more than 26 percent since 2004, showing strong signs of rapid development potential. Shanxi Civil Aviation Airports Group manages the Taiyun Wusu International Airport. It adopted the principle, “Acting in world and China simultaneously, enhancing density of hot air routes, developing potential air routes,” early in 2007. Since then, it has aggressively promoted the passenger air transport development of Taiyun Wusu International Airport. It opened several new flights and increased its network of air routes. Eight more airlines opened new services in Taiyun Wusu International Airport in 2007, increasing the airport’s total number of airlines to 18. Chinese airlines such as Kunpeng, Northeast, Chongqing, Huaxia, Sichuan, Deer Jet, Okay Airways, and Grand China Express began operating the airport’s flight network. The daily frequency of flight connecting Taiyuan with the four commercial air routes of Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen has been greatly improved. Other improvements on flight density include upgrading the regional air route between Taiyuan and Hong Kong from seasonal to annual, and increasing the number of flights connecting Taiyuan to most tourist destinations all over China. The increase in frequency of flight is also attributed to the principle of enhancing flight density on air routes being promoted by the Shanxi Civil Aviation Airports Group. At least two airlines operate each air route linking Taiyuan, resulting in the dissolution of the monopoly of air routes and pricing. This in turn encourages the public to travel by air to and from Taiyuan, which boosts passenger volume even more.
