In terms of sub-regions, the European Union is picking up and Asia continues to grow rapidly. In 2017, the revenue growth rate of European destination products exceeded 30%. After the impact of terrorist attacks and fingerprint visas, the European Union is expected to gradually emerge from the downturn. The company also strengthens the in-depth development of its products and subdivides its products in Southeastern Europe, North America, Russia, and the Arctic, and continues to maintain its leading position in the European Union. The Asian tourism market continues to grow rapidly, with more than 1 million person-times (accounting for 50% of the company's annual tourist service), and it has become the company’s second largest source of income. The company continued to invest regular flights and charter products at hotspot destinations to strengthen its dominant position in the Asian market.

In 2017, Beijing, East China and Central Plains contributed 41.1%, 25.9% and 11.5%, respectively, of the total revenue of the company, accounting for nearly 80% of the total revenue. The year-on-year revenue growth of the three major regions was 11.4%, 22.2% and 18.7%, respectively. The rapid increase in income in East China was partly due to the expansion of retail outlets.
