China's passenger flights are '10 times safer than the global average', says China's civil aviation chief, Li Jiaxiang.


China’s passenger flights are “10 times safer than the average global level”, says the nation’s civil aviation chief.

"China’s civil aviation safety has remained stable, Li Jiaxiang, head of the Civil Aviation Administration, told reporters at the National People’s Congress in Beijing.

"According to statistics from the International Civil Aviation Organisation, all of our safety indexes showed we’re better than the world’s average by 10 times.”


However, Li said he had experienced flight delay problems.

Such delays, together with poor customer service, are issues about which Chinese travellers frequently complain.

Li said that to solve such problems, the administration would “improve air traffic control services and coordinate with various parties for more support”.

The administration was also considering publishing information on all airlines’ flight arrival and departure information in major civil aviation publications in order to encourage better public supervision.

Earlier, Li revealed that China would be carrying out test flights to assess the performance of its first home-produced large passenger jet, C919, before the end of the year.
