Australian Tourism Minister Andrew Robb recently revealed in the first "Australia Week in China" event that China has become Australia's second largest tourism market, and the favorite city and region for Chinese tourists is Sydney.
Last year, Sichuan Airlines opened a direct flight from Chengdu to Melbourne. In May of this year, Sichuan Airlines will open a direct flight from Chongqing to Sydney. Wang Jing, head of the Shuncheng branch of the Provincial China Youth Travel Service, said that the opening of direct flights will definitely increase the attractiveness of tourism along the Australia-New Zealand route to tourists.
Industry insiders pointed out that the Australian offer is between 1 and 1.5 yuan, and there is a special price of 15 to 7 yuan during the off-season.
