t the end of last month, a piece of news caused a great shock to the travel industry. After years of continuous growth, 10 of the 37 airports in the country with an annual passenger throughput of 10 million experienced negative growth in April. Beijing Capital Airport had the largest drop, up to 5.9%, among which Shanghai, Sanya, Haikou, Ningbo, Qingdao, Hangzhou, etc. Not only the passenger throughput has declined, but the number of take-offs and landings at multiple airports and the throughput of cargo and mail have also declined.
At the same time, the per capita consumption phone number list of domestic tourism in 2018 also did not increase compared to 2017 (1,080 yuan per capita in 2017 and 1,077 yuan in 2018). No matter from the domestic per capita tourism consumption amount or the airport throughput, domestic tourism seems to have reached an inflection point.
The OTA industry is also facing great changes. Ctrip signed Peng Yuyan as its spokesperson after a lapse of 2 years; Fliggy strengthened its platform attributes and established a travel alliance; Meituan went public, and its in-store and wine travel business accounted for 30% of its revenue, with a quarterly growth rate of 43%. The growth is gratifying; Tuniu's revenue has stagnated for three consecutive quarters; Tongcheng Yilong is working hard in second- and third-tier cities, and it is the first share of Mini Programs.
