The company attributes the increase to the following four factors: "
- The air transportation market has been recovering rapidly and continuing to grow this year. In particular, the air transportation market of the People’s Republic of China has continued to grow rapidly.
- The gradual effect of the synergy brought by the absorption of Shanghai Airlines by the Company, which the progress of the implementation is underway.
- A substantial growth in the passenger traffic for Shanghai’s passenger transportation market as brought by the World Expo held in Shanghai.
- The Company’s efforts in continual improvement and enhancement of its operations and management standard, which has fostered steady growth of its operational efficiency."
