Abstract : Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has taken a slew of measures to continually improve China's international air freight capacity, according to CAAC disclosed at a news conference on April 2, reported Chinanews.com Thursday.

BEIJING, April 2 (Xinhua) -- Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has taken a slew of measures to continually improve China's international air freight capacity, according to CAAC disclosed at a news conference on April 2, reported Chinanews.com Thursday.

The CAAC will continue to cut operational costs of international air cargo by implementing the relevant policies previously introduced, including exemption from the civil aviation development fund, as well as reduction of airport charges and air traffic control charges. At the same time, subsidies will be given to freight air and charter flights undertaking key flight missions.

In terms of simplifying the approval procedures of freight air flights, 7x24-hour online approval had been realized through the international flight information system.

It is noted that the CAAC has approved a total of 528 cargo charter flights in March this year, 4.47 times that of the same period of last year.

Passenger airlines are encouraged to carry out freight transportation to make up for the shortage of air freight capacity amid the epidemic.

The CAAC and the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) will jointly ensure the connections between foreign trade enterprises and air freight transport enterprises, to maintain the balance between supply and demand among those enterprises.

According to Jin Junhao, an official with CAAC, China's international cargo flights reach 1,195 this week, up 17.85 percent from 1,014 before the COVID-19 outbreak. (Edited by Jiang Feifan with Xinhua Silk Road, 346129473@qq.com)
