China has lifted bans on group travel to more than 70 additional countries, which has had a positive impact not only on the tourism sector and air traffic, but also on the global economy.

China represents a treasure for all countries of the world in the tourism sector as a tourism giant, and it is one of the largest foreign tourism markets thanks to the rising middle class.

China recently lifted a ban in force since the Corona pandemic on group travel to more than 70 countries, including the United States, Japan, South Korea, India, Britain, Turkey, Belgium and Saudi Arabia.

Since China’s reopening of its borders last December, the country has resumed tour group travel to dozens of countries across Asia, Africa, Europe and South America, but many countries have been banned due to geopolitical tensions.

The resumption of group tours began last week, according to a statement from China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism, which said the easing would apply to all travel agencies and online platforms across the country.

Before the pandemic, China was ranked as the first country in the world in terms of the number of tourists who went abroad, with about 155 million departures counted in 2019, according to the consulting firm McKinsey, while the Chinese government expected that this season would witness two billion trips, almost twice the movement of last year, and 70 percent of 2019 levels.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the recovery in air traffic will generate net profits for airlines that are expected to reach $9.8 billion, as this figure is more than double IATA’s previous forecast in December 2022 of $4.7 billion. .
