The world’s second biggest aviation market (China) welcomed a new carrier right at the end of 2011 when Dalian Airlines launched operations. The carrier is a joint venture between Air China (80%) and the Dalian regional government (20%), and has begun services with an initial fleet of two 737-800s. So far the route network comprises daily flights to Beijing, Shenzhen and Taiyuan, with onward flights from Taiyuan to Sanya.

Dalian Zhoushuizu International Airport serves Dalian, a major city on China’s north-eastern coast with an urban population of almost four million people. In 2010, the airport handled 10.7 million passengers, up 12.1% on 2009, and ranking it as China’s 16th busiest airport.
