Yingan Airlines Takes Off

China's latest startup carrier, Yingan Airlines, will reportedly launch services today following China's relaxation of regulations governing new airlines. The regional carrier, which received its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in March 2014, will operate from Simao Airport, Yunnan province. It will fly to Libo, in the Guizhou province and Chongqing using Chinese-manufactured MA-60 turboprop aircraft. Also launched this month is Ruili Airlines, which is based in Kunming and serves Lijiang, Xishuangbanna, Tengchong and Ruili using 737s. China's airline market is also expecting the entry of Donghai Airlines, Sutong Airlines and Urumqi Airlines, which are due to launch in the coming months.
