The Civil Aviation Administration of China has asked the whole industry to ensure safe, harmonious and smooth travels for passengers during the upcoming Spring Festival at a conference on Dec 27, 2011.

It is forecasted that the travel volume of civil aviation will reached about 35 million, up 7 percent from a year earlier.

To satisfy Taiwan and mainland passengers' travel demands, the CAAC required mainland airlines to arrange extra flights between Taiwan and the mainland during the Spring Festival period, from Jan. 9 to Feb. 6.

The Spring Festival travel season will start on Jan. 8 and end on Feb. 16.
