Flying

Edit This

There are many domestic airlines in China and since the country is so huge it makes sense to use them. Air China, China Southern and China Eastern are the three large state-owned entities that remain after the consolidation of the old carriers. Recent liberalisation of the airline market have seen newer airlines, like Shanghai Airlines, which offer newer planes. Service, while improving, is still far from what you would expect from regular international airlines. Be prepared for delays and flight cancellations, which still seem to be a regular occurence.
