Two of China's biggest airlines recorded an increase in passenger traffic growth in October following a decline a month earlier. China Southern Airlines, based in Guangzhou, said it saw traffic grow to 2.67m in October, a jump of 11.4% on a year earlier. Meanwhile China Eastern, based in Shanghai said its passenger traffic rose 1.8% year-on-year in October to 1.65m, after falling 7.9% in September. Both airlines said a surge in international traffic had been one of the main drivers for growth, while the week-long national holiday at the beginning of October will also have helped boost ticket sales.
