Travel groups containing children constitute 33.8 percent of international flights during the 2024 summer holidays.

Euro 2024 has highlighted sports' appeal among Chinese tourists. Qunar, an online travel service provider, reported a doubling of flight bookings to Germany during the football event and a 1.5-fold increase in hotel bookings, with prices up by 25 percent.
