China-US air travel is ex­pected to ex­pand

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

There are more op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop di­rect flights be­tween China and the United States, ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial with one of Amer­ica’s ma­jor in­ter­na­tional air­lines.

“With Bei­jing and Shang­hai al­ready served, we are look­ing at other emerg­ing mar­kets in China,” Andy Buchanan, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of in­ter­na­tional plan­ning for United Con­ti­nen­tal Hold­ings Inc (United) said in an email to China Daily.

Be­cause air travel be­tween the US and China has be­come in­creas­ingly prof­itable, a num­ber of US and China-based air­lines have in­creased or will in­crease flights.

In June, Chicago- based United will be­gin non­stop ser­vice be­tween San Fran­cisco and Chengdu, a Chi­nese city with a pop­u­la­tion that ex­ceeds 14 mil­lion peo­ple.
