As of November 27, there were more than 2.6 million trips through Changsha Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection Station, up 10.3% over last year. Foreign passengers were 21.4% of the total and made Hunan the first among central China’s six provinces (Henan, Shanxi, Hubei, Anhui, Hunan, and Jiangxi).

Air routes, inbound and outbound trips, and passenger and freight volume has soared. In 2019, Changsha opened seven new direct air routes to countries and regions, including Macao SAR, Nairobi of Kenya, Kathmandu of Nepal, and Seri Begawan of Brunei. Zhangjiajie has three new routes to Osaka of Japan, Siem Reap of Cambodia, and Manila of the Philippines.
