The Civil Aviation Administration of China has asked all aviation service providers in the country to be fully prepared for the Spring Festival air transportation period by not only ensuring transport safety, but also keeping passengers worry-free.
This year's Spring Festival transportation period in China will last for 40 days from January 11, 2009, to February 29, 2009. To make sure the aviation transportation work is done well during this period, CAAC has issued a circular asking its affiliates to strengthen their leadership, ensure safety, and constantly improve their customer service level. It specially asks them to pay close attention to weather changes and flight operation and to be properly prepared to respond to emergencies. In addition, it asks that transportation-related power be "rationally arranged" and priority to be given to emergency materials.
The meet these goals, CAAC has set up a work team to be responsible for the air transportation work during the Chinese new year transportation period.
