Pudong airport sees busy holiday traffic

The number of passengers and flights handled at Pudong International Airport during the Spring Festival holiday climbed 40 percent and 6 percent respectively from the same period of last year, the airport said.

The airport recorded 516,000 passenger trips and more than 32,000 flights during the weeklong period from January 31 to February 6.

Japan was the most popular tourist destination for Chinese mainland travelers instead of previous favorite Thailand. The country attracted 88.6 percent more Chinese than last year.

Though the number of Chinese tourists dropped 12 percent from last year’s Spring Festival, Thailand ranked second on the list.

Next came Hong Kong, America and South Korea.
