Hong Kong and China are the best-growing intercontinental destinations for Germans taking an Easter break this year. Flight bookings are ahead of 2018, and increased seat capacity this summer could help sustain the trend, according to latest reports.

Overall, intercontinental bookings from Germany are currently ahead 2.7% for the Easter holiday period, compared to last year.

According to the experts’ figures, Hong Kong bookings are showing a 31.4% jump on 2018, and China 30.9%. Other favoured destinations are the USA, ahead 20.6%, and Morocco, ahead 20.0%.

Whilst Thailand is not quite showing the strongest growth, it does seem to be far and away the most aspirational long-haul Easter holiday; as over 40% of all German internet flight searches for travel to Asian destinations include Thailand.

This summer, the Asia Pacific region will benefit most from increased intercontinental scheduled seat capacity from Germany. Between May and October, it’s up 4.1% for the region, which has a 5% market share. The total international capacity increase from Germany is 0.7% on last year.

Capacity of flights to other European destinations, with an 82% market share, is up 0.4%.

Intercontinental destinations with the largest growth in scheduled flight capacity from Germany between May and October, are Qatar, up 18.2%; Thailand up 12.9% and Hong Kong up 10.0%.

The collapse of the German holiday airline, Germania, earlier this month (February), has had an impact on some destinations, but others are proving to be resilient.

Among those once served by Germania, but still showing capacity growth for this summer, are Serbia up 5.9%; Egypt 0.2% and Turkey 7.3%.
