Xiamen Airlines expects to achieve its 30th consecutive year of profitability in 2016, remaining China's longest consecutively profitable airline, the airline announced at the year-end.

The Xiamen-based carrier will accumulate 3.59 billion tonne kilometers of passenger traffic in 2016, an increase of 12% year-on-year.

The carrier expects to record an increase of 4.2% to 23.7 million passengers, a 3.2% increase to 220,000 tonnes of cargo and a 1.3% increase to 206,000 aircraft movements during the year.

Meanwhile, Xiamen Airlines has maintained a good safety record. It operated up to 456,000 million safe hours in 2016, achieving its 32st year of safe operations.

Moreover, it is the only Chinese airline that has been profitable for 30 consecutive years since 1988.

During the year, it took delivery of 21 new aircraft and expanded its fleet size up to 145. As its fleet expands, Xiamen Airlines speeded up its global expansion with launching about three intercontinental routes including Melbourne, Vancouver and Seattle.

Specifically, Xiamen Airlines welcomed its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner into fleet on December 8.
