The keynote is about how to provide exclusive services for the entry point of full-process travel, so customers can improve their travel experience.
“In recent years, the vigorous development of China’s tourism industry has stimulated the demand of the aviation market, and also brought tremendous potential and space for the global business development of Air China. By the end of February 2019, Air China had 590 aircraft of various types, mainly Boeing and Airbus. The number of passenger routes operated reached 445. I look forward to cooperating with ITB China and wish ITB China 2019 great success”, said Xue.
