The airport in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, once hard hit during the COVID-19 epidemic, saw its numbers of domestic passenger flights as well as passengers return to the levels a year ago on Friday, the airport operator said Saturday.

The Wuhan Tianhe International Airport handled 64,700 passengers and 500 domestic passenger flights Friday, also the highest daily levels since the airport resumed domestic passenger services since April 8, said the Hubei Airports Group.

Qu Xiaoni of the Hubei Airports Group said the Wuhan Tianhe airport will push the resumption of regular international passenger flights between Wuhan and destinations like Seoul, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta.

Meanwhile, the airport has resumed and newly opened nine regular international cargo routes since April 8. It will also soon open cargo services from Wuhan to Amsterdam via London as well as to Dhaka and Delhi.
