China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China and Aus­tralia have agreed to open the avi­a­tion mar­ket be­tween the two coun­tries.

The new ar­range­ments an­nounced on Sun­day will re­move all ca­pac­ity re­stric­tions be­tween Aus­tralia and China for each coun­try’s air­lines, al­low­ing Aus­tralian tourism busi­nesses to take ad­van­tage of the largest and fastest grow­ing con­sumer mar­ket in the world.

The two coun­tries have seen a boom of di­rect flights in re­cent months. Air China, China’s na­tional flag car­rier, started its Chengdu-Syd­ney line in Novem­ber this year, while China South­ern Air­line is ex­pected to be­gin its Guangzhou-Ade­laide ser­vice in De­cem­ber. Aus­tralia’s flag car­rier Qan­tas also an­nounced it will re­launch its daily ser­vice from Syd­ney to Bei­jing in Jan­uary.
