Baiyun Airport fosters ties with Birmingham Airport to boost hub status
Baiyun Airport has been accelerating its globalization and strengthening cooperation with other airports in recent years.
Guangzhou Baiyun Airport and Birmingham Airport have stepped up their partnership in the areas of developing air hub, airport operations, joint marketing, service optimization and resource sharing.
Baiyun Airport has been accelerating its globalization and strengthening cooperation with other airports in recent years as its scale of operation steadily expands.
In the past year, Baiyun Airport added 13 international routes, nine of them for passenger services and four for cargo, and eight new international destinations, of which six are for passenger services and two for cargo. It handled 412,000 takeoff and landings, putting through 54.78 million passengers/trips and 1.454 million tons in cargo. International passengers made up 18.1% of the total throughput and the number of transit passengers grew 2.7% y-o-y.
An observer said that Baiyun Airport is open to cooperation with other airports and this will help it keep abreast of industry trends and learn from the management experience of other domestic and overseas airports to improve its own operational safety and quality control.
Baiyun Airport is becoming a major regional hub in Asia, a region that is driving global aviation growth. The airport’s growth will be spurred by expanding its air transport network and improving its service assurance, while leveraging the“one belt and one route” national infrastructural development strategy and Guangdong’s “21st century Maritime Silk Road” planning.
