An estimated 16,000 Chinese tourists holidaying in North Queensland helped drive a 218% increase in regional bookings for the Mantra Group over the Chinese New Year period. Mantra CEO Bob East said: “The response has far exceeded our expectations”.

Chinese tourists have been a focus for the region and this year there were an extra 13 charter flights plus regular services into Cairns from China Southern, China Eastern, Cathay Pacific and Qantas to cope with the demand during the peak Chinese holiday season.
