China Air Travel Hits Fresh Record on Post-Covid New Year Boost

Total air passenger traffic reached almost 180 million trips in the first three months of 2024, state broadcaster CCTV said Tuesday, citing data from the Civil Aviation Administration of China. That’s the most ever for such a quarter and represents year-on-year growth of 37.7%.
