Waiting on airliners shortened

THE time that airline passengers spend waiting was reduced in tests of a new, computerized system to manage flight volumes at the city's two airports, air traffic officials said.

That should be good news for those flying out of Shanghai during the upcoming Spring Festival.

The system, called Collaborative Decision Making, will be updated late this month and fully deployed at Pudong and Hongqiao international airports before the coming spring travel rush, according to regional traffic supervisors.

In the case of China Eastern Airlines, flights saved an average of about 20 minutes in waiting. When delays do happen, it makes it more likely that passengers will be sitting comfortably in the terminal rather than aboard an airplane on the ground.
