China-US air travel is expected to expand
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.
