Thanks to new flight frequencies, Venice ready to dialogue with Chinese companies

January 17, 2020


Abstract : As a matter of fact, the latest update dated back to 2015. The revision of the bilateral agreements has been strongly requested by the sector, in order to give practical effect to the agreements concluded by the Italian airports with the Chinese ones.

MILAN, Jan. 15 (Class Editori) - Direct connections between Venice and China can finally depart. "The agreement signed in the context of bilateral air negotiations between Italy and the People's Republic of China certainly represents a great step forward for air transport and traffic flows between the two countries. As an airport, we can now finally dialogue with the airlines having the concrete possibility of activating the direct flight between Venice and China," wrote Save in an official note. The reference is to the protocol signed in Beijing by the president of ENAC, Nicola Zaccheo, and his Chinese counterpart, who will indeed triple the flight frequencies between the two countries.

As a matter of fact, the latest update dated back to 2015. Therefore, after four years there was the need for something more than a servicing. The revision brought weekly frequencies per part to 49. However, notwithstanding the fact that on the Italian side there was still room for manoeuvre, on the Chinese side it had long started to run out. Of the assigned frequencies, only 36 were actually used by Chinese carriers. The other 13 were instead used by the larger companies: Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern. The public giants thus manage to block the regional and private companies that pace up and down and compete from within the People's Republic.

That situation blocked the development of new destinations and the implementation of protocols already signed between the Italian and Chinese airports. Last October Armando Brunini, CEO of SEA reiterated the need to start "bilateral negotiations with Beijing" with the aim of "obtaining new frequencies" by increasing the maximum number of those currently allowed between Italy and China. We want to highly increase this level because we are sure to succeed and bring other flights and other carriers to Milan". The airport in Ancona is also looking at east. The city, in the Marche region, works on a direct flight to Shenzhen, for which negotiations are still ongoing. "We have never stopped working on it" explained the governor Luca Ceriscioli, quoted by the local press, "we are always in contact with Cits, the Chinese State Tour Operator, which is looking for a new airline to entrust the route to Ancona". The direct intercontinental flight was the subject of another memorandum, signed in Rome last March by the Region and by China International Travel Services.
