Air China adjusted capacity timely according to the relief situation and allocated wide-body aircrafts as its best to evacuate stranded passengers in Sichuan province. On May 15, 28 flights departed from Chengdu and other 9 other flights were especially arranged for disaster relief. Due to the congestion of CTU airport and affected navigation system, Air China adjusted large aircrafts including A330 and B777 to transport remaining people. Therefore, total transported passenger volume did not change although the frequency was reduced. Another 9 flights departed from Chongqing collected passengers from Jiuzhaigou.

Passengers who bought Air China’s tickets for flights from/to Chengdu, Chongqing, Jiuzhaigou, Mianyang, Yibin, Xichang, Panzhihua, Luzhou, Dazhou and Wanxian or interline international flights and who traveled after May 12 could rebook or refund for free.
