Chinese Airlines Set for Subsidies


Chinese airlines are set to be offered subsidies from May 21 to July 20 to help airlines ride out the covid related demand destruction according to China’s chief financial officer today.

  • The subsidies will only be offered when the average daily number of domestic flights per week are lower or equal to 4500 flights and when average loads are lower than 75%.
  • The maximum grant is 24,000 yuan per hour to each loss-making flight.
  • A number of domestic flight routes in China are down over 90% because of strict domestic lockdown measures.
  • Domestic jet fuel demand has been crushed as a result along with demand for other transport fuels.
