On March 23, Mike DiCarlo, executive vice president of Attract China, was quoted by the Boston Business Journal  in “Hainan Hasn’t Even Started Flying to Boston from Beijing and It’s Already Adding Flights”, discussing the new Beijing-Boston nonstop service by Hainan Airlines and the boom of China’s outbound travel.

From the article:

“Michael DiCarlo, executive vice president of Attract China LLC, tells me he’s not surprised that Hainan is already responding to the pent-up demand for Beijing-Boston flights. He says about 147,000 Chinese travelers visited Boston in 2012. He says his firm — which promotes U.S. businesses, including nearly 70 in the Boston area, to Chinese travelers — predicts that number will exceed 250,000 this year because of the Hainan flights.”
