DALI, CHINA – The 6th Yunnan Aviation & Tourism Conference was held in Dali on April 26, at which representatives from 13 airport groups and OTAs of China jointly announced the Dali Declaration, advocating to grow the cross-airline transfer business, enhance the civil aviation service quality and jointly build a new type of aviation hub.

Dali Declaration

1. We, as managers of airports and OTAs, attended Dali Forum on April 26 in Dali where the building of a new type of aviation hubs in the future was discussed.

2. We recognize that the air transport industry, under the circumstance of The New Normal, still maintains steady growth with each economic indicator demonstrating a sound trend.

3. We recognize that the domestic air travel needs are robust, the throughput of airports maintains high growth, and air travel has become increasingly popular among the public.

4. We recognize that the imbalance between the demand and supply of the domestic aviation industry has become increasingly prominent, and we face a common challenge of striking a fine balance between safety and development, between safety and benefits, and between safety and normal operations.

5. We recognize that initiatives, including “Sincere Service” and “Building of Civil Aviation Service Quality System”, carried out by the Civil Aviation Administration of China are aimed at driving the high quality development of the aviation industry, encouraging and promoting the application of new technologies and service innovation, and improving the public’s satisfaction and sense of gain towards aviation services.

6. We recognize that under current circumstances, there is a common need and urgent desire among airports of different regions to cooperate on matters including cross-airlines transfer service and information sharing, which is an integral part of the building of a new type of aviation hub and also conducive to building groups of airports with clearly-defined functions as well as convenient national flight route network.

7. We recognize that the development level of domestic airports across different regions of China is imbalanced and these airports urgently need to strengthen their cooperation so as to continuously improve their operating efficiency and customer satisfaction.

8. We recognize that if Chinese airports set up harmonized cooperation standards, work together to improve their traveler service quality, and enhance traveler’s experience, they, despite the limited resources, will be able to help more travelers access to civil aviation services, resolve the pain points in interlining among different airlines, and improve the airlines’ load factor.

9. The Dali Declaration is agreed upon at this conference and the attending managers are committed to the following goals:

1 Promoting the application of new technologies, improving the standards for ground passenger and baggage service

1.1 Accelerating the building of fast customs clearance facilities at airports. Clear customs with e-boarding pass by 2019 and clear customs with documents by 2020.

1.2 Enhancing airports’ capability to track baggage. Help more airlines to meet the requirements of IATA Resolution 753 in 2018 and realize the tracking of baggage status.

1.3 Improving the baggage transport efficiency of airports. Make sure the baggage transport time of connecting passengers meets the airports’ MCT requirements and the baggage arrives when the passengers land at the airport.

2 Driving the formulation of cross-airlines transfer (CAT) standards

2.1 Driving the sharing of CAT data.

2.2 Supporting the through-check of baggage when a traveler makes cross-airlines transfer.

2.3 Supporting travelers who need to make a cross-airlines transfer to print their boarding pass at the previous airport.

2.4 Providing travelers who make cross-airlines transfer with assistance during the process.

2.5 Shortening the minimum connecting time (MCT) of airports.

3 Developing value-added aviation service products
All parties will, through data sharing, wok together to develop the following value-added aviation service products and set up a value-added aviation service products network:

4 Sharing and mutual access

4.1 Commit to improve the aviation service quality, promote and manage the application of new technologies and service innovation, and encourage the sharing of resources with industry counterparts.

4.2 Commit to enhance the airport’s utilization efficiency and the building of regional hubs, strengthen synergy and encourage mutual access.
