At Shanghai Pudong International Airport in an impromptu act flight attendants surprised travellers and onlookers with a dance performance in the middle of the terminal to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
Sixty-six flight attendants joined in the dance at the airport in Shanghai which incorporated hip-hop movements with elements of traditional Chinese martial arts.
The dance coincided with the first day of China’s 40-day New Year’s celebration, known as the Spring Festival.
Each year, it represents the world’s largest seasonal migration of people as families reunite with each other.
“Our endeavour was to leave them (the passengers) with a pleasant memory of their journey
home during the Spring Festival travel rush,” said dance organizer Xiong Siyang.
The Year of the Horse officially starts on January 31 and the Spring Festival transportation
period lasts 40 days from January 16.
