Air travel is one of the most popular modes of transport across the globe. It not only helps you save on your precious time but further allows you to travel to exotic destinations separated by vast stretches of water bodies or deserts, where you could not travel using any other mode of transport. Hence there is a rapid increase in the number of cheap flight services around the world.
China airlines is a reputed name in the aviation industry and has created a prominent place for itself within the industry in a very short time period. China airlines has established and consistently maintained a decent flight safety record. According to surveys conducted by PlaneCrashInfo.com, china airlines has a 26% above ( better than) average flight accident rate, which is impressive as compared to other international flight service providers including, Singapore Airlines (101 percent worse), Air France (79 percent worse than average), Japan Airlines (JAL, 0 percent better/worse), Virgin Atlantic (9 percent better), and Cathay Pacific (31 percent better).
GCW Consulting, an airline industry consultancy, states China’s overall air safety record to be the best in the world over the past six years. Further, China airlines has set the 2nd highest traveler kilometers flown per year in the year 2008 with 251 million km, and is second only to the U.S. China airlines has embarked on a journey of constant development. A total of 40 airports have been built in China during the last decade. China is constantly leashing the soviet old- built planes and is constantly working hard for building and maintaining a well- trained and professional staff and work force as well as maintenance personnel.
China airlines’ air record should be considered against the backdrop of the factors that are working against the development of the aviation industry in China.
Beijing, the capital of the People's Republic of China, located in north China, is the hub of transportation. Major domestic and international flights to and from China arrive and department from Beijing. Beijing flights provide cheap domestic flight tickets to farmers and inexpensive business class flight tickets to people travelling to China from abroad. These are meant to boast both the aviation industry as well as the tourism industry.
Chinese aviation industry is constantly growing. Many domestic and international service providers are enthusiastic about the development of the Chinese aviation industry. It is noteworthy that even during the financial crisis of 2008, when airline prices went skyrocketing in most of the countries around the world, due to rises in fuel prices, China airlines continued with its sustained development.
