AIRPORTS REVEAL HUGE ECONOMIC BENEFITS OF NEW CHINESE ROUTES
The value of air routes to China make the news today with Sydney Airport revealing that its new Zhengzhou service will pump AUSD 60 million into the local economy and Heathow claiming that its direct flights to China add £510 million yearly to the UK's GDP.
According to Sydney Airport, Tianjin Airlines' new service from Zhengzhou will bring an extra 14,000 Chinese visitors annually to Australia and ensure "tens of millions of extra dollars" for businesses in New South Wales (NSW).
“We’re expecting an estimated 14,000 new Chinese visitors each year to take advantage of Tianjin Airlines’ convenient new route into Sydney, where they’ll experience for themselves one of the greatest cities in the world.
“Every single one of these visitors will help support jobs in NSW. This new service means an additional estimated USD 60 million will be driven into the state’s economy each year."
China is Sydney’s largest and fastest-growing inbound visitor market, and the Australian gateway has implemented a range of measures to enhance the experience of Chinese passengers, including by becoming the first organisation outside greater China to use Baidu Maps, a popular mobile navigation service.
Meanwhile at Heathrow, the airport claims that new research, carried out by Frontier Economics, reveals that its direct flights to China already contribute more than £510m annually to the UK economy and are responsible for nearly 15,000 jobs.
