BEIJING, Dec. 3 -- Civil aviation in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) has developed quickly since China's reform and opening-up.
 
Take Lhasa Gonggar Airport for example, it welcomes more than 50 airplanes every day for its transport peak and its throughput has risen at the speed of 13.3 percent.
 
In the 30 years since 1978, the airport has seen an increase of more than 50,000 landings and takeoffs. More than 7 million passengers and 200,000 tons of cargos have been transported from the airport. This has been a great asset to the TAR's economy.
 
With the operation of the Nyingchi Airport, civil aviation in TAR will make more progress.
