China has seen tremendous growth in all sectors over the past decade, the airline industry and the sectors around it being no exception. The graph below shows the percentage growth in the in-service airline fleet in China as compared to the percentage growth in the global airline industry. The notable trend here is that between 1999 and around 2003 the two seemed to be moving similarly, around this time the Chinese fleet bottomed out at around -2.0% growth.
