The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) announced on the 7th that it will expand domestic flights to China from 2023 to 2025 and focus on the recovery of international flights.
Currently, China is adhering to a policy of ‘Zero Corona’. As the aftermath of Omicron continues around the world, and ahead of the big event of the Beijing Winter Olympics and the Lunar New Year holiday, stricter quarantine measures are being taken. Accordingly, CAAC has decided to focus on corona control and prevention until this year, and prepare more air support measures. From 2023, the plan is to build ‘development momentum’ based on the measures prepared this year. CAAC said, “The period from 2023 to 2025 will be a growth period for China’s aviation industry, focusing on improving the level of openness by expanding the domestic market and recovering the international market.”
Meanwhile, CAAC predicts that there will be more than 270 civil airports in China by 2025. The annual number of take-offs and landings is 17 million, and passenger traffic is expected to be 93 million.
