At 9:50 am on November 30, the arrival of Air China flight CA 912 from Stockholm to Beijing Capital Airport took the number of passengers who have travelled through Beijing Airport past 60 million. This important milestone is testament to the boom that the Chinese civil aviation industry is currently experiencing. With more flights arriving in and departing from Beijing than any other international or domestic airline, Air China celebrates this milestone with Beijing Capital Airport.
Since March 2008, when Air China established itself in Beijing Capital Airport’s Terminal 3, journeys have become more convenient and enjoyable for Air China’s passengers. In Terminal 3, Air China has optimized its baggage handling system and its departure control system, making collecting luggage much quicker and easier for passengers. Furthermore, Air China has improved the efficiency of airport transfers, enhanced check-in procedures and developed several new services for its passengers. During the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Air China successfully provided its passengers with the optimal travel experience.
“We congratulate Capital Airport on surpassing the 60 million passengers’ milestone,” said Air China Vice-President Zhang Lan. “Through Air China’s cooperation with Beijing Capital Airport, we have not only experienced a record number of passengers, but also improvements in both safety and services.”
