Chinese carrier West Air has applied to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for rights to operate international services from its base at Chongqing.

West Air is actively looking outside of China's domestic market as part of its long-term expansion plan, said a company official. It is not clear when the airline can expect to receive CAAC's approval, added the official.

West Air is owned by China's HNA group, and operates two Airbus A319s, four A320s and three Boeing 737-300s, Flightglobal's ACAS database shows.
