10FEB24 | 2024 Chinese New Year Fly-In Celebration!

What is Chinese New Year and why this event?

Chinese New Year, also know by various names across the world (Lunar New Year, Spring Festival), is a joyous celebration marking the beginning of the lunar new year in the Chinese calendar. This event is deeply rooted in centuries-old traditions, with vibrant festivities, family gatherings, and cultural rituals.

In the spirit of the Chinese New Year, our Fly-In coincides with one of the most significant human migrations globally, known as 春运 “Chunyun.” Chunyun, or the Spring Festival Travel Rush, is the period surrounding Chinese New Year when millions of people travel to reunite with their families.

This massive migration, often regarded as the world’s largest annual human migration, sees travelers taking various modes of transportation to reach their hometowns, creating a unique and bustling atmosphere across transportation hubs and airports.

I would love to extend my invitations to the Infinite Flight Community in celebrating the Chinese New Year with a spectacular Fly-In event! This event marks my first attempt at organising an event on Infinite Flight, and I’m excited to share the joy of aviation with the community.

Server: Expert expert

Airports: Choose any Chinese airport of your preference to start or finish your flight. Feel free to explore the vast network of Chinese airports, each offering a unique flying experience. Share your selected airport and route to inspire fellow pilots. For reference, the busiest airports during this period are ZBAA, ZBAD, ZSPD, ZGGG. I hope Infinite Flight could feature this event and include one of the above as a hub in the ATC schedule.
