Shanghai's air traffic congestion likely to decrease

7-Apr-2011 12:23 PM

East China Air Traffic Management Bureau stated Shanghai's air traffic is expected to ease as the minimum flight altitude is lowered to 7800m, down from 8400m, as of 07-Apr-2011 (Shanghai Daily, 07-Apr-2011). The minimum altitude between two aircraft is set at 300m, so 600m adds two more "air lanes", with the authority adding that this will help reduce flight delays.
