The country's total flight hours for cargo and passenger transportation reached nearly 5.6 million hours, increasing nearly 9 percent. Flights reached 2.5 million with an increase of 6 percent from a year earlier. So far, there have been no air travel accidents or air defense accidents in China.

Li Jiaxiang, head of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), said that next year, the administration will continue to make great efforts to ensure safe air traffic, promote the stable yet rapid development of the civil aviation and improve the quality of aviation-related services.

It will further reduce flight delays, establish a coordinated and efficient operational mechanism, promote mergers among domestic airlines and encourage them to pursue differentiated development.

In 2012, the CAAC plans to increase the country's air transportation volume to 63.2 billion ton-kilometers, air passenger volume to 320 million and air cargo volume to 5.8 million tons.
