Flights resume at SW China airport

KUNMING, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- Flights resumed Saturday after heavy fog lifted in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province.

Nearly 10,000 passengers departed from the Kunming Changshui International Airport on Saturday, after many of them had been stranded there since Thursday, said the airport operator.

From midnight Friday to 3:00 p.m. Saturday, the airport saw 281 flights, including 111 arrivals and 170 departures.

Massive flight delays began to affect the airport on Thursday after thick fog reduced visibility to 300 to 800 meters.

The airport fell into a brief period of disorder when some stranded passengers grew angry with the delays and service flaws.

Operators said they were making all-out efforts to maintain order and arrange accommodations for stranded passengers.

Yunnan Airport Group Co., LTD apologizes to passengers for the massive flight delays at Kunming Changshui International Airport in a public letter on January 7.
The letter says that affected by the dense fog, a total of 440 flights were canceled and about 20,000 passengers of 716 flights were trapped in the airport.
The operation time of the airport is not long, and pre-arranged plannings for the massive delays are imperfect. Staff's mergency security on the overloaded condition is inexperienced. The adjustments of flights have not been announced timely. Services related to catering, heating, health care, hotel and traffic have not been provided timely and sufficiently. All these have caused chaos and provoked tensions at the airport. Thus, staff members feel deeply sorry and apology for passengers sincerely.
It is also said in the letter that the airport is ready to accept advices and criticism from the public so as to provide passengers with fast and efficient service.
