Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Chinese airlines offer insanely cheap deals to lure back travelers

Many Chinese people missed the biggest traveling season, the Spring Festival in February because of the outbreak of COVID-19. Since then, travels both in the air and on the rails have been largely restricted or limited for whether business or leisure.

Airlines lose money by either grounding airplanes or flying with empty seats. So, as travel restrictions are eased before upcoming Labor Day holidays (May 1-5), airlines started offering deals that could be seen as mistakes, such as a price as low as a vegetable and buy one get another seat free. But will such ultra-low fares bring fliers back to the cabin? Does anyone dare to sit in a middle seat of a jammed flight when no cure or vaccine has been developed for the novel virus? Those who want to avoid such risks, some airlines came up with anti-coronavirus flight packages. For example, a multi-seat option offers empty surrounding seats for the price of a seat. Also, some airlines include coronavirus insurance and an anti-virus pack with face masks and anti-bacterial wipes in the fares.

Will such deals make you feel safer to fly now?

Enjoy reading the article and learn about what you could expect in the travel industry once the travel restrictions are eased.
