On May 24, local time, Airbnb, an online home rental platform, announced that as of July 30, 2022, Airbnb will suspend its support in China, including listings, experiences and related booking services. To minimize losses for the hosts and customers, Airbnb is waiving fees of a wide range of services from May 24, 2022 to July 29, 2022.

Airbnb has been operating in China since 2016. Many similar homestays in China have more or less learned the operation model of Airbnb. Tourism has struggled since the pandemic, and the CCP’s zero COVID policy further exacerbated Airbnb’s predicament.

Airbnb has 6 million listings worldwide, and about 150,000 listings have been removed in China, which accounts for about 1% of Airbnb’s lodging business. Airbnb will continue to serve the travel needs of Chinese tourists abroad, while its offices and 100 employees in China will remain.
