The Gongga Airport in Lhasa, capital of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, is now making full preparations to embrace the upcoming May Day Holiday, as over 30,000 tourists are expected to visit Tibet by air during the period from May 1 to May 7.


Xu Bo, vice-director of the civil aviation administration's Tibet branch, said that Tibet received 110,000 tourists from home and abroad in the first quarter. To ensure tourists safe and convenient access in and out of Tibet, the civil aviation administration has arranged 236 flights, capable of providing a total of 37,000 seats.


Besides, Air China will resume its Lhasa (Tibet) to Xining (Qinghai) flight, and Guangdong-based Shenzhen Airlines will open a new flight course linking Shenzhen and Lhasa on May 4.
