2012 03 20

AIRPORTS in southwestern China's Guangxi Autonomous Region handled 8,430 tonnes of cargo in February, 60 per cent more than in the same month in 2011.

According to Xinhua's report, Nanning airport's throughput surged 68 per cent to 5,440 tonnes. Guilin airport handled 2,145 tonnes, up 40 per cent. Beihai airport handled 292 tonnes, up 57 per cent. Liuzhou airport recorded an increase of 72 per cent to 550 tonnes.

The surge of cargo throughput in February is affected by the Chinese New Year holiday in January, which usually comes in February. After removing this factor, Guangxi's air freight throughput still has a double-digit increase.

From January to February, Guangxi airports' handled 16,800 tonnes of cargo, up 9.4 per cent year on year. Nanning, Beihai and Liuzhou airport all recorded increases of more than 15 per cent during this period.

This year, Guangxi is aiming to develop Nanning into the largest trade and distribution centre for fruit aqua product in China and even Asia and develop Guilin into a logistics hub for cargo flows between southwest China and Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta.
