Taiyuan Wusu International Airport – located in Taiyuan, capital city of North China's Shanxi province – has made multiple preparations to ensure it efficiently handles the upcoming Spring Festival travel rush.

The 2022 Spring Festival travel rush started on Jan 17 and will end on Feb 25, lasting 40 days.

The airport has established a special team responsible for COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control measures. The team will focus on strengthening such work as health QR code checking, temperature measurements, sterilization and waste disposal. 

Moreover, it will establish response mechanisms to optimize emergency handling and carry out emergency drills for epidemic prevention and control.  

While keeping on the alert for the pandemic, the airport will further improve the quality of its services for passengers during the travel rush.  

For senior citizens, children and pregnant women with special needs, the airport will offer one-stop services and an assistance hotline.  

Volunteers will be dispatched to the security check-in waiting area to provide passengers with services such as inquiries, flight information and assistance, and help passengers to pass the inspection quickly. 

Taiyuan Wusu International Airport is reminding passengers to take personal protection when entering the terminals, wear masks and keep a safe distance of 1 meter. Passengers who need nucleic acid testing can go to the west side of Gate No 3 on the first floor of Terminal T2.
