The country has handled a total of 389,600 departure flights in March, up 140.91 percent year on year.
Chinese airports have seen the total number of operations, including takeoffs and landings, jump 69 percent month on month to 820,000 in March, nearly the same level before COVID-19 epidemic.
In terms of the passenger load factor, it has reached 73.2 percent per day, 11.84 percent higher than the average level in February, said the report.
Effective control of the spread of coronavirus by China helped its domestic markets to bounce back quickly throughout the second half of 2020.
