Chinese Friendly Airport
The agreement, which consolidates a long-standing collaboration, aims to promote Milan as a destination for the Chinese market and to further increase passenger traffic between the two destinations.
In 2018, 897,000 passengers flew between China and Milan. This figure confirms the consistent growth over the last 10 years in the volume of traffic between the two destinations, which increased by 16% in the last year. There are currently 24 direct connections a week between China and Milan with Air China (Shanghai, Beijing), Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong) and Neos (Nanjing and Guiyang). Neos is the only Italian airline that directly links China to Italy.
By 2020, China will be the country with the largest number of tourists abroad and Milan Malpensa Airport is ready to welcome the growing number of Chinese passengers thanks to “Chinese Friendly” services that aim to make the Milan airports more usable so that the area and its airports become more attractive for Chinese airlines and their passengers.
