While addressing participants at the third edition of the World Chinese Conference which opened in Mauritius on Thursday, the minister explained that the decision conforms to the government's strategy to promote the Mauritius destination to ease the impact of the euro zone crisis.

"Our objective is to double the number of Chinese tourists on an annual basis as from 2013," the minister said.

In light of the initiative, Yuen will soon head to China with a delegation comprised of representatives from the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, the Association of Hoteliers and Restaurants in the Mauritius Island (AHRIM) and Air Mauritius to market the destination and speak with the Chinese travel agencies to get their commitment to promote the Mauritius destination in a more aggressive manner.
Recently Mauritius tourism ads can be seen in many places of Shanghai.

Shanghai Daily
2013-1-21

AIR New Zealand opened daily direct flights today between Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Auckland.

The Shanghai flight takes off at 2:15pm and arrives in Auckland at 6:50am the next day. The return flight leaves Auckland at 11:40pm and lands in Pudong at 7:10am. Boeing 777-200 aircrafts will be used on the route.

The airline launched a Hobbit-themed aircraft in celebration of the much anticipated release of the Peter Jackson film "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" last month, exciting fans around the world.

Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe said another Hobbit-inspired Boeing 777 would be unveiled ahead of the second Hobbit movie.

Nice. When the flight was first launched in 2006 it was three times week. Pretty solid demand between Auckland and China nowadays.

Fog grounds, delays 74 flights in Shanghai
Shanghai Daily
2013-1-21

DENSE fog grounded 45 flights and delayed 29 flights at the city's two airports this morning, airport authorities said.

Thirty one flights were cancelled and 20 were delayed at the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport by 9:30am while 14 were cancelled and nine were delayed at the Pudong International Airport.

Visibility was just 1,800 meters at the Hongqiao airport and 1,200 meters at the Pudong airport. The city issued a yellow fog alert, the third highest level following red and orange, www.xinmin.cn, reported.

The fog also delayed four bullet trains headed for Beijing as of 8:20am.

The weather bureau later lifted the yellow alert because the haze was expected to disperse before noon.

The city's PM2.5 index rose to 184 micrograms per cubic meter at 8am but the air pollution will be driven away by an approaching cold front, the city's environmental protection department said.

Hongqiao airport's new shops for monied travelers
Shanghai Daily
Jan 28, 2013

MORE luxury brands are moving to Hongqiao International Airport, with a new, self-styled shopping "boulevard" selling high-end brands starting to take shape inside the airport, said Shanghai Airport Authority officials.

The new shopping area is part of the departure waiting area and can be reached after passengers pass security checks.

Most stores offer clothing and accessories.

Brands like Shanghai Tang, which offers traditional Chinese clothing, and Bally were among the first to debut yesterday at the airport's Terminal 2, with others such as Burberry and Salvatore Ferragamo opening by mid-year.

More than 10 stores have opened or are opening soon at the terminal, while more than double that amount are expected at the terminal eventually.

The new area's stores have two stories, larger than most of the terminal's high-end stores.

There won't be many discounts - the goods aren't duty free. A traveler interviewed yesterday said "only a small amount of goods have discounts" after he shopped at Bally.

Hongqiao airport saw its commercial areas expanded and service upgraded in the past few years after a joint venture was established by the Shanghai Airport Authority and its Hong Kong airport counterpart in 2009.

The airport was ranked as an international four-star airport in a five-tier system last year, and also China's best airport during 2011-2012 by Skytrax, which calls itself the world's largest airline review site.

However, some customers say improvements are needed.

"Retail establishments on the premises, including restaurants, are limited," said a Hong Kong traveler, identified as C Choi on the Skytrax website.

Commercial outlets at Terminal 2 now take up over 13,800 square meters, up 13 percent from the terminal's opening in 2010.

The Hongqiao airport, which handles most of Shanghai's domestic flights, saw more than 33 million passengers last year.

That made it the fourth airport in volume among Chinese airports.

The construction of 4th and 5th runway will be completed by the end of 2014 and the new runways will open in 2015.

The fifth runway is for Comac and the taxiway will lead to its ARJ21/C919 final assembly line under construction to the south.

Delays hit hundreds of flights
Shanghai Daily
Feb 20, 2013

SOME 40 flights were canceled and 350 delayed at Shanghai's two airports yesterday because of snow and sleet across south China.

Some 110 outbound flights and 80 inbound flights were delayed at the Hongqiao International Airport, while over 160 were delayed at Pudong International Airport, according to the airport authority.

Most delayed flights were to Beijing, as well as Nanjing in east China's Jiangsu Province, Kunming in the southwest Yunnan Province and Guangzhou in the southern Guangdong Province.

"Workers from airlines were busy clearing snow from the runways at the Pudong airport in the morning," said Hu Wei, manager on duty at the operation headquarters of the airport.

Aircraft at Pudong were able to take off about 7:30am.

The Hongqiao airport was affected more severely as only six of 40 scheduled flights managed to take off before 8am.

The airport authority dispatched 50 workers and 30 vehicles to remove snow on the runway, the airport authority said. Most aircraft were finally able to take off as the heaviest snow began to taper off.

Delays rippled through the morning at the Hongqiao airport until 10am, but there were no reports of passengers being stranded for a lengthy time.

The airport authority also said on its microblog that all aircraft had to wait until snow and ice were removed from runways.

"The snow and ice could make aircraft wheels skid and cause great danger during takeoff and landing," the airport authority said.

The flights returned to normal in the afternoon at both airports, the authority said.

They could still have built those runways closer together?

You mean it will be their own runway for testing (and not only) aircraft?
