According to CTCNN, a Chinese travel industry finance media, the top five air tickets booking travel websites in September 2013 were Qunar, Ctrip, Mangocity, Kuxun and Elong.
Except Mangocity, user coverage of the other top 4 sites all dropped in September in comparison with August. Mangocity had a dramatic growth in air tickets booking, with a MoM increase of 92.3%. Elong suffered the biggest MoM drop with 22.9%.
Online air tickets rarely had promotion and the travel demands decreased after the summer vacation which led to the air tickets booking drop.
