This year's National Day holidays witnessed 110 million passenger trips by train, with the number of passenger trips surpassing 10 million from September 28 to October 7, data from the China State Railway Group shows.

While air travel was not as good as last year partially due to epidemic prevention, overall demand remained resilient. From October 1 to 7, 9.29 million passenger trips by air, with an average of 1.32 million daily, a 19.6 percent drop from last year. The average passenger load was 73.7 percent, a 4.8 percentage points decline from last year, and the actual number of flights was 90,663, with 12,952 daily flights, which was 11.27 percent lower than in 2020.
