China Eastern Airlines plans to increase capacity by up to 10% in the near term as it looks to expand its international network to meet soaring demand. Executive Director Luo Zhuping told Dow Jones Newswires the Shanghai-based carrier aims to raise the share of revenue from international services to 50% in two years from an expected 35% this year. He said the airline is considering new international and regional routes, as well as increased frequencies. The airline currently flies to 80 international and regional destinations. China Eastern, the country’s second-biggest airline by fleet size after China Southern Airlines, merged with smaller rival Shanghai Airlines early this year.
