Rising posture, small knowledge: (1) What is the sailing season? According to international civil aviation practice, the flight schedule is divided into summer and autumn seasons and winter and spring seasons. Summer and Autumn Season: The last Sunday in March of that year to the day before the last Sunday in October, lasting about 7 months. Winter and spring season: the last Sunday in October of the year to the day before the last Sunday in March of the following year, lasting about 5 months. The summer and autumn sailing seasons are about 2 months longer than the winter and spring sailing seasons. The flight time of summer and autumn flight season is slightly earlier than that of winter and spring flight. Reminder: Yesterday, March 27 (Sunday) was the first day after switching to the summer and autumn season. The following flight schedules may often change. Please pay attention to the latest flight schedule to avoid unnecessary trouble or delay. (2) Why is the sailing season divided? The whole year is divided into two seasons: summer and autumn and winter and spring, which are arranged according to the needs of civil aviation production. Airlines usually use seasons to adjust flights-increase the capacity of popular routes, and at the same time suspend flights or reduce the number of flights with insufficient market demand. The flight season change mainly takes into account the adjustments of different tourist destinations in the off-peak and peak seasons, as well as the adjustment needs of airlines on the flight market feedback from the previous season. For example: the winter and spring seasons shift to the summer and autumn seasons, and the number of flights in Sanya will decrease after the change of seasons, because summer is usually the off-season for Hainan's tourism and there are few tourists, so airlines reduce flights accordingly.
