Air transport has the advantages of the fastest speed, good time efficiency, and relatively simple requirements for cargo packaging.
Air transport is a mode of transportation that uses airplanes, helicopters and other aircraft to transport people, cargo and mail. With the characteristics of being fast and maneuverable, it is an important mode of modern passenger transportation, especially long-distance passenger transportation, and is indispensable for the transportation of valuables, fresh goods, and precision instruments in international trade.
Air transport has six characteristics: commodity, service, international, paramilitary, capital, technology and risk-intensive, and natural monopoly. Air transport can be divided into different types according to different standards. Air transport originated in 1871. Due to the international economic downturn in the past two years, the air transport industry has encountered a bottleneck. However, there is still broad space for the development of air transport in the future.
