Travel demand is expected to explode as health officials give their blessing to enjoy the break without fear of the pandemic.

Travel demand, depressed since the end of 2019 because of the pandemic, is expected to rebound – and possibly explode – in the first major public holiday since Covid-19 cases stabilised in China. Long-distance travel was discouraged by the authorities for February’s Spring Festival, traditionally a time of family reunions, because of outbreaks in the north of the country. 

A total of 250 million trips are expected to be made across China between April 30 and May 5, according to online travel booking platform TravelGo. That would surpass the 195 million trips taken during the 2019 holiday – before Covid-19 broke out – and a surge on last year’s 115 million.
