Since the beginning of March, the domestic air route market has achieved positive growth compared to the same period in 2019, with the average daily number of flights increasing 7.6 percent year on year, said Zheng Hongfeng, CEO of VariFlight.

As China's local governments further lift travel restrictions, the average daily passenger load factor of domestic routes has reached more than 70 percent, a record high since 2021, according to Zhang.
