WUHAN, March 25 (Xinhua) -- Commercial flights will partly resume operations in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, starting on April 8, according to local authorities.

The flights to resume services exclude international flights and flights between Wuhan and Beijing, Wang Benju, with the provincial department of transportation, told a press conference on Wednesday.

"We are now applying to the Civil Aviation Administration of China to resume commercial passenger flights in non-Wuhan airports in Hubei as soon as possible," Wang said. "The flights do not include international flights and those between Hubei and Beijing."

Hubei is also preparing to resume operations of domestic and international cargo flights, Wang added.

Meanwhile, inbound trains will start arriving in Wuhan's 17 train stations starting Saturday, while departing businesses will resume in Wuhan on April 8.
