CHINA'S NEXT STEP TOWARD AN OPEN AIRLINE INDUSTRY TO TAKE PLACE BY YEAREND, 'WORLD AIRLINE NEWS' DISCLOSES

 POTOMAC, Md., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- One of six airlines in China founded from the former state-owned and operated Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) will be spun off as a corporate group by the end of the year, as the next step in preparation for eventual privatization of the airline -- Air China International, "World Airline News" reveals next week.
 In one of the first extensive interviews with a western journalist, Yin Wenlong, who was named chairman of the new Air China Group, said his group, which includes China's largest carrier, also will include several "service providers" such as maintenance and catering companies, and even other related companies such as travel agencies and hotels. China's commercial aviation industry is by far the fastest growing sector of the industry in the world, mushrooming some 30 percent in the past year and preparing for still additional growth in the next several years through substantial orders of commercial aircraft, particularly from Boeing Commercial Airplane Co.
 The exclusive interview is published in Monday's issue of "World Airline News" and also is included in the most recent edition of "Asian Aviation News," one of the newest publications within Phillips Business Information's Aviation Group.
 This week's issue of "World Airline News" also extensively covers the Annual General Meeting of the International Air Transport Association, held in Dallas. Reports include a news analysis by editor Jim Brown of the conference of 250-plus airline chief executive officers and an interview with Delta Air Lines Chairman Ron Allen, who revealed that Delta next week will begin a comprehensive review of its North American operations, and may seriously consider the establishment of a new, low-cost short-haul carrier similar to the "CALite" operation Continental Airlines recently launched in the southeast United States.
 Phillips Business Information, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Publishing International (PBI), now produces eight newsletters in its Aviation Group. In addition to "World Airline News" and "Asian Aviation News," PBI also publishes "Commuter/Regional Airline News," "C/R News International," "Airline Financial News," "Airline Marketing News," "Aircraft Value News," and "Air Safety Week." PBI provides a broad range of business information resources, including newsletters, magazines, directories and conferences in the fields of telecommunications, data communications, financial services, defense and aviation.
