Hainan gets prepared for holiday transportation
Major Chinese airlines have been approved to add more than 3,400 flights during the weeklong holiday, sending people back home from Haikou and Sanya to major cities.
Last week, after more than 20 days of preparation, three domestically developed advanced laser monitors were installed at two major ports in Haikou, Hainan province, and Xuwen in Guangdong province at the other side of the Qiongzhou Strait.
This is one of the 12 measures taken by the Hainan provincial government to ensure smooth transportation in the strait, according to Lin Dong, director of Hainan provincial transport department.
In addition, the Civil Aviation Administration of China will make the Haikou Meilan International Airport a test ground this year to open red-eye flight services from February 9 to 24 to provide visitors richer travel experiences and more economical air services.
