Four characteristics of traffic flow at Chongqing airport in the first half of 2010

As economies continue to recover, port offices have launched many measures that are convenient and beneficial to the public. The 24-hour self-service bilingual hotline in Chinese and English has been opened, "the priority inspection passage for large-scale enterprises" and "the queue-free passage for late passengers" have been launched, and the reservation for clearance for special visitors and some other systems have been implemented. The level and quality of port services have been comprehensively improved.
The carrying capacity of international passengers at the Chongqing airport shows explosive growth. There were 150,298 international passengers from January to June with a year-on-year growth rate of 71.73%. The number of international passengers is expected to exceed 300,000 by the end of the year, exceeding the highest ever recorded number in the history of Chongqing airport.
There are four main characteristics:
First, the airport traffic has shown substantial growth. The socio-economic situation in the city developed healthily during the first half of the year. Since the needs of aviation are increasing, airlines are increasing transportation capacities, and profits of flights are getting improved. The airport traffic during the first half of 2010 was equal to the total airport traffic in 2008.
Second, mutual exchanges between Chongqing and Taiwan are flourishing. With the opening of direct flight to Taiwan, the settlement of Foxconn and other Taiwan enterprises in Chongqing, and the signing of ECFA agreement, Chongqing and Taiwan have maintained closed contact. Taiwan has become the most preferred outbound destination for people in Chongqing, and tourist arrivals to Taiwan have grown by 2.6 times over the previous year. With the great attraction from policies concerning comprehensive Free Trade Zone and Free Trade Port Zone, the number of compatriots of Taiwan coming to Chongqing has increased by 50%.
Third, the market for outbound travel is heating up. The number of outbound travelers for government affairs has decreased this year. The consumption needs of outbound tourism are strong and the number of people who went abroad for private purposes has doubled within the first half of the year.
Fourth, the number of foreign visitors has also grown dramatically. The city received 400,000 foreign visitors within the first half of the year, up 60% year-on-year, far exceeding the number (19,000) of people who enter or leave China via this city.
