KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 (Bernama) -- China Eastern Airlines, which currently has more than 100,000 employees and is the seventh-largest airline in the world, has made tremendous progress in high-quality development with its airlines as the core business, in the past ten years.
In a statement, it said ordinary people in China Eastern from different countries and different types of work, sharing the same blue sky dream, witness and contribute to the growth of the company, and find greatness in everyday work.
These ordinary people shape new momentum for the development of China Eastern with their experience, participation and witness.
Among others, Captain Wang Xiaoyong recalled the chartered intercontinental flight he flew in 2021 for China's first all-cargo aircraft to transport COVID-19 vaccines.
When the flight carrying 1.05 million COVID-19 vaccines and syringes was about to arrive in Dominica, the Dominica air traffic controller said: "Thank you China, thank the cabin crew, and thank the Chinese vaccine" via the Air-Ground Channel.
At that moment, he truly felt the lofty mission and responsibility of his career which narrows the distance between mountains and seas around the world.
Meanwhile, Ludwig Strobel from Germany has been the executive chef for many years and in the western food industry for 40 years.
Together with his Chinese colleagues, he created a Chinese-Western in-flight meal, so that both Chinese and Western passengers could enjoy a feast of taste buds on China Eastern flights.
China Eastern has extended its route network to 1062 destinations in 170 countries and regions around the world, which can provide air travel services for 150 million people annually.
