China sees 225 mln air passenger trips with e-boarding passes in 2018

February 14, 2019


Abstract : China has seen a total of 225 million air passenger trips use electronic e-boarding passes to take flights in 2018, according to statistics from the country's civil aviation authorities.

BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- China has seen a total of 225 million air passenger trips use electronic e-boarding passes to take flights in 2018, according to statistics from the country's civil aviation authorities.

In 2018, 229 airports of China provided the mobile devices-based flight information query service, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

By the end of 2018, there were about 40 Chinese airports that supported digital boarding passes.

In addition, 32 airports with annual passenger throughput in the 10 million-level were able to provide comprehensive digital services to passengers from checking-in to boarding.

China's civil aviation authorities will push forward e-boarding as well as the integration of the civil aviation sector with new technologies such as facial recognition, luggage check-in, and intelligent inquiry services, said the CAAC in its 2019 development goals.

It has been making efforts to promote the digitalization into the industry and injecting new digital technologies such as the self-service baggage check-in and whole-process tracking.

China's civil aviation industry handled 610 million passenger trips in 2018, representing an 11.4 percent year-on-year increase, said statistics from the CAAC.
