The Sichuan Airlines is expected to introduce Airbus A-330 to the Lhasa Airport, according to the Lhasa Office of the company.

In 2010, the Sichuan Airlines will increase flights in the Lhasa Airport to cope with Tibet's booming tourism market.

The first Airbus A-330 will arrive at the Chengdu Shuangliu Airport on Feb. 5 and debut on Feb. 9. The plane is projected to go into operation in the Lhasa Airport in March.

At present, the Sichuan Airlines is operating two routes from the Lhasa Airport, namely, the Lhasa-Chengdu route and the Lhasa-Chongqing route. The Lhasa-Chongqing flight taking off from Lhasa flies once a day at 11:20 a.m. and the Lhasa-Chengdu route has three flights every day.

During the Spring Festival travel peak, the Sichuan Airlines will guarantee its service quality and make preparations to ensure flights in time.

Statistics show that by the end of 2009 the company had transported 166,577 passengers in and out of Tibet.
