CAAC registers 3.7-M passengers during Chinese New Year


China’s air transport registered a passenger volume of 3.7 million during the “Golden Week” of the Chinese New Year. Based on preliminary statistics from the CAAC, 29,400 civil aviation flights were recorded in China over the duration of the Golden Week of the Chinese New Year. The statistics of passenger volume and civil aviation flight almost equal the recorded data from last year. China’s civil aviation authorities implemented several measures to ensure normal flight operation during the Golden Week of the Chinese New Year. They carried out a firm transport operation, installed duty officers, strengthened safety management measures, and made certain that the security and safety of flight and aviation were not compromised. The air transport of China reported three main features during the Golden Week of the Chinese New Year. 1. The CAAC evaluated the registered daily departure flights of passengers traveling via air transport beginning January 30th to February 12th based on 52 airports of main Chinese cities. Accordingly, from January 30th to February 2nd, passenger volume reached an average of 502,000 times daily. By February 3rd, 527,000 passengers had registered as traveling within the country. On February 5th, 6th and 7th, the total number of travelers in China’s airports were down to 490,000, 340,000 and 330,000 respectively. The trend in passenger volume increased from February 9th onwards, and on February 12th, as the Chinese New Year festivity came to a close, the passenger volume finally rose to 660,000 person times. 2.The passenger load factors of traditional and major cities such as Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Kunming, and Haikou, and a few minor cities, including Changchun, Sanya, and Harbin, registered a 70-percent increase in passenger volume. Other Chinese cities registered considerably lower passenger volume during the same period. 3. The capacity to transport a high volume of passengers traveling back to their respective places during the end of the Golden Week of the Chinese New Year was fully satisfied due to the extensive preparation of all Chinese airlines.
