 6月11日, 第68届国际航空运输协会年会暨世界航空运输峰会(The International Air Transport Association (IATA) 68th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit)在北京(Beijing)隆重开幕[1]。这是国际航空运输协会继2002年上海(Shanghai)之后,第二次在中国举办盛会[2]。

中国民用航空局(Civil Aviation Administration of China)局长[3]李家祥在会上致辞[4]时指出,未来一二十年[5],随着中国经济的持续发展,中国民航[6]仍将保持强劲[7]的发展势头[8]。李家祥透露,到2020年,中国运输机场[9]数量将达到240个以上,满足旅客[10]运输量约7亿人次[11]的市场需求[12]。

今后几年,中国计划新建机场70个,扩建[13]机场100个。到2015年底,运输机场数量将达到230个以上,旅客运输量将达到4.5亿人次,运输飞机2700架。

On June 11, The International Air Transport Association (IATA) 68th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit opened in Beijing. After the IATA Annual General Meeting in Shanghai in 2002, this is the second time this grand gathering takes place in China.

Director of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Li Jiaxiang, made a speech in the summit, indicating that within 10-20 years, along with the continuous economic developments in China, Chinese civil aviation will maintain its strong development trend. Li Jiaxiang revealed that by 2020, the number of airports for transport planes will reach more than 240, answering the market demand of approximately 700 million passengers (man-times yearly).

In the next several years, China plans to construct 70 new airports and enlarge 100 existing airports. Until late 2015, the number of transport airports shall reach more than 230, with a number of 450 million passengers and 2700 transport planes.
