On January 12, at the 2021 National Civil Aviation Work Conference, the Party Leadership Group of Civil Aviation Administration of China proposed the overall work ideas for civil aviation during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, requiring the construction of a modern national airport system with complete functions, and making new breakthroughs in the construction of smart civil aviation.
According to the meeting, by 2021, based on expanding domestic demand, China will strive to achieve a total transportation volume of 106.2 billion ton-km, 590 million passenger trips and 7.53 million tons of cargo and mail traffic, and reduce losses and increase profits of the aviation industry.
Public Transport and General Aviation
“Two Wings Together”
Vice chairman of the CPPCC national committee, secretary of the CPC leading group Yang Chuantang transportation at the meeting pointed out that in 2021, all the staff members to speed up the implementation of the civil aviation system good build national civil aviation network, a world-class airport group and modern logistics supply chain system tasks, such as high quality good civil aviation “difference” planning, pays special attention to the aviation safety, improving the capacity of the international air freight, optimization of after-sales service, to uphold and strengthen the leadership of the party, in the modernization construction practice being a good first, ready to support.
The meeting clarified that during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, the strategic role of civil aviation industry in the national economic and social development will be more prominent, and China’s civil aviation will enter a period of transformation of development stage, improvement of development quality and expansion of development pattern, with both opportunities and challenges.
According to the law of development and “difference” civil aviation industry development stage characteristics, the civil aviation administration of the party group of “much starker choices-and graver consequences-in” period, make appropriate adjustments to the overall working train of thought of the “12334”, “difference” civil aviation aggregate working train of thought: practice a concept, promote the wingers, stick to three line, build perfect three system, open up a new prospect of four.
To be specific, we will promote public transport aviation and general aviation. Adhere to flight safety, clean government safety, sincere service three bottom line. “To build and improve the three systems”, namely, to build a modern national airport system with complete functions, an air transport network system with system layout and efficient operation, and a safe and efficient production and operation guarantee system. “Four new situations” have been opened up, including a new pattern of coordinated development of the civil aviation industry, new breakthroughs in the construction of smart civil aviation, new improvements in resource guarantee capacity, and new achievements in the industrial governance system and governance capacity.
Build a new pattern of development
The meeting pointed out that the COVID-19 epidemic in 2021 is still the biggest uncertainty factor affecting the recovery and development of the industry, and the whole industry should always tighten up the prevention and control of the epidemic, adjust the prevention and control strategies in a scientific and dynamic way, and improve the organizational system for dealing with public health emergencies.
In promoting the recovery and development of the civil aviation industry, the meeting pointed out that building a new development pattern is the top priority of economic work in 2021. Civil aviation should continuously optimize industry layout of resource factors, promote the balanced development of the industry more coordinated, and under the background of epidemic prevention and control “, in order to expand domestic demand to strategic basis points, and tap market potential, stimulate the market vigor, strive to complete the transportation total turnover 106.2 billion tonkilometers, passengers 590 million passengers, 7.53 million tons of goods, back to before the outbreak of more than 80%, 90% respectively, and before the outbreak of flat; Efforts to achieve aviation enterprises to reduce losses and increase profits.
In terms of deepening the reform of civil aviation, the meeting proposed to form a “twin-engine driven” working pattern of planning and reform. To be specific, we should formulate and introduce the opinions on deepening civil aviation reform during the 14th Five-Year Plan period. We will push forward reforms in key areas, such as the reform of civil aviation freight rates and related charges, and the three-year action plan to reform state-owned enterprises owned by the Civil Aviation Administration. We will continue to promote the rule of law in civil aviation, actively advance the revision of the Civil Aviation Law, and strengthen the study of the Civil Aviation Law.
In terms of the construction of smart civil aviation, the meeting proposed to further promote coordination and linkage and focus on improving the efficiency of coordinated operation. We will strengthen operational support capabilities, accelerate the development of a modernized air traffic control system, and accelerate the construction of the “10+3” air corridor. Enhance the level of coordinated operation, continue to strengthen the construction of the airport transport management committee, and further promote the “three-network integration” of time, traffic rights and pre-flight plan data. Promote digital transformation of operation, explore the construction of civil aviation industry data resource integration application ecosystem, and build a digital environment for intelligent operation of civil aviation.
According to the meeting, smart civil aviation should be placed in a more prominent position and become the core driving force for the high-quality development of civil aviation. We will adhere to the strategic guidance of scientific and technological innovation, steadily advance the implementation of the Joint Action Plan for Independent Innovation of China’s New Generation Smart Civil Aviation, and accelerate the layout of key projects of scientific and technological innovation 2030 and national key research and development programs in the field of civil aviation. We will enhance the capacity for independent innovation in science and technology, accelerate the application of 5G, artificial intelligence and other technologies in the field of civil aviation, and actively promote the Beidou system to pass ICAO technical standard verification. We will train high-quality scientific and technological innovators, professionals with specialized skills and international talents.
