[photopress:air_beiing_airport.jpg,full,alignright]Air China, the official airline partner of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, has set up a 24-hour command center to ensure smooth air traffic during the Games.
Cai Jianjiang, Air China’s president, said the company had invested RMB568 million (about $81 million) to improve its ground control system and train employees.
The company had recruited 300 new stewards and selected 562 volunteers from current staff to work for the Games.
The new center would facilitate the coordination between the airline and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), and other key units at the Beijing Capital International Airport.
