When is the peak time of Spring Festival 2019? Has the Spring Festival peak of 2019 started? When will the Spring Festival peak in 2019 end? Let's have a look.
On December 23, 2018, Spring Festival train tickets were sold, and some popular tickets, such as those from Guangzhou to Chaoshan and Chongqing, are still hard to buy. The peak period of ticket sales is 12 days, which is divided into two periods, one is from December 31, 2018 to January 6, 2019, the other is from January 10, 2019 to January 14, 2019.
There are 12 days in rush hour
From January 21 to March 1, 2019, the railway spring festival will last for 40 days, 15 days before and 25 days after the festival. China's railways are expected to send 413.3 million passengers, an increase of 31.76 million on a year-on-year basis, an increase of 8.3%, with an average of 10.33 million passengers per day, setting a new record for the Spring Festival.
The Internet and telephone booking of Railway Spring Festival train tickets will be sold 30 days in advance, and the train tickets on the first day of Spring Festival (January 21, 2019) can be purchased on December 23, while the ticket window and the booking office at the station will still be sold 28 days in advance. On December 23, the online sales of tickets were also very popular. Many popular lines, such as Guangzhou to Chongqing ordinary speed cars and EMU tickets, were hard to buy. Not only were the hard sleeper tickets robbed by many people, but also a lot of hard seat tickets were queued up in the system, so orders could not be generated directly. But the EMUs to Chaoshan direction can still buy tickets at first, and after ten minutes, there are no tickets.
It is worth noting that according to the ticketing calendar issued by the railway department, there are two periods in the peak of ticket sales, one is from December 31 to January 6 next year, and the other is from January 29 to February 4 next year (December 24 to new year's Eve). The other is from Jan. 10 to Jan. 14 next year, selling the return tickets from Feb. 8 to Feb. 12 next year.
