Flights in China Expected to Surge Past Pre-Pandemic Levels

China’s Civil Aviation Administration has reported that the country is expecting domestic flights to rise 34% above pre-pandemic levels, providing Chinese airlines with a further boost amid the country’s economic recovery.

A summary of a Friday press conference on the website of CAAC News revealed the winter and spring season flight plan, with 96,651 domestic flights having been scheduled per week. Since the same period last year, 7,202 new weekly flights have been introduced following the opening of 516 new domestic routes.
