In major cities in China, plane ticket booking is available via a computer network or the Internet. Airport tax is required.

The followings are some tips we collect for you when you travel China by air.

When you’re travelling in China by air, there are some baggage weight restrictions. For economy class, the carry-on baggage is 5kg and the checked baggage is 20 kg. But if the luggage doesn’t exceed too much, usually the airport won’t be that strict. The economy in China is good and you can buy many things locally. We suggest you taking as less baggage as you can.
