CHONGQING, Jan. 27 -- The Chongqing Municipality in southwest China plans to launch 10 new international air routes this year, Mayor Tang Liangzhi said in a government work report on Sunday.

In 2018, the city launched 14 international air routes, bringing the total number of overseas routes to 82, Tang said in the report delivered to the annual session of the municipal people's congress.

The Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport handled 41.6 million passengers last year, about three million of whom left for and arrived from overseas destinations.

Chongqing has direct flight routes to New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Rome, Moscow and Helsinki. Air cargo routes connect the city with Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Chicago and Sydney.

By 2020, the airport aims to bring the total number of air routes to 100 and handle 50 million passengers.
