China - signs of travel returning
Some promising news about the travel industry in China... from the article:
“The number of total searches follows a similar pattern,” the company says. “The total number of searches for flights to China (both domestic and international inbound) is currently 55% of the volume of searches seen in the week of January 5th, up from a low of 34% in mid-February.
“The average number of searches per searcher has increased in the past month, with an average of five to six searches per unique searcher.”
In another positive sign that China is looking to get back to business quickly, the percentage of flights searched for corporate travel has almost doubled since pre-COVID-19 levels – which is currently 38% versus 20% in early January.
While it's too early to draw conclusions, this is encouraging. Thoughts?
