China has taken a series of steps in the past few years to enhance aviation safety.
In August, the Civil Aviation Administration of China published a draft amendment to the Civil Aviation Law, add- ing a new chapter that regulates 14 types of behaviors that endanger safety.
They include the use of mobile phones, smoking, forcibly occupying seats, blocking gates, breaking into airports and airplanes, assaulting crew members and other workers, fighting, spreading rumors and causing trouble.
Violators will face stiff penalties under the new rules, which take effect on Jan 1. For example, people who use cellphones on air- planes during restricted periods could be fined up to $7,500. Some articles of the law have also been revised to make the airline industry shoulder more responsibility to ensure flight safety and passengers’ interests.
In yet another safety measure imposed this month, aviation authorities have asked all airplanes to file location reports more frequently.
They have asked all airliners to send their longitude, latitude and altitude every 15 minutes or less to ground control.
Nearly 100 manhole covers in the campus of Shandong University of Arts in Jinan, Shandong province, have been turned into cartoon characters. The works have added much fun to the campus.
