On April 28, due to weather conditions, flights were delayed at Beijing Daxing International Airport, China. A group of Xinjiang tourists took out their instruments and began an impromptu performance, attracting the attention of surrounding passengers who joined in with clapping and cheering. The joyful atmosphere went viral online. The Labour Day holiday has become a popular travel period for Chinese people, and this year's five-day holiday is the first since the effective control of the domestic epidemic. Travellers have shown a strong willingness to travel during this period. According to the Ministry of Transport of China, from April 29 to May 1, the total number of passengers expected to be transported by rail, road, water, and air transportation in China is about 159 million, an increase of 161.9% compared to the same period in 2022.
