Air China Overview
Air China was established in July,1988 as a result of the Chinese government’s decision to split the operating divisions of Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) into six separate airlines: Air China, China Eastern, China Southern, China Northern, China Southwest, and China Northwest. Air China was given chief responsibility for intercontinental flights and took over the CAAC’s long haul aircraft and routes. In 2010, Air China carried 60 million domestic and international passengers with an average load factor of 80%. The airline reported a net profit of 12 billion RMB (USD $1.83 billion) in 2010. Today, Air China is the Flag Carrier of China, and it’s most stable and reliable airline.
