As a leading developing country, China has notably closed the gap with developed countries in terms of people’s life
expectancy and health. In fact, by 2015, Chinese people’s average life expectancy at birth had increased to 76.34 years.
Compared with the mortality rate, however, the changes in China’s fertility rate have been astoundingly rapid. China became a low fertility country toward the end
of last century with its total fertility rate dropping below the replacement the level in 1992 from 5.81, about 2.8 times of rep

Moreover, the traditional airline carriers will also be challenged by some nonavi
