Air China expects minimal impact from high-speed rail

Air China Investor Relations General Manager Rao Xinyu stated China’s high-speed rail development will have a minimal 2% to 3% impact on the carrier’s route network which is made up of 40% international and regional routes (Money.163.com, 10-Dec-2010). Air China estimates a 10% impact on other carriers. On domestic routes, Mr Rao stated less than 10% of the carrier’s revenue is generated from routes less than 800km while the carrier’s routes under 1000km are focused in the south-west, northern and north-east regions, which have minimal impact from high-speed rail links.
