The waterway sector was expected to record 7.37 million journeys, up 4 percent each days on average over the eight-day period from a year earlier.

The Civil Aviation Administration forecast about 5.89 million air journeys, up 18 percent year on year.

He said transport departments had prepared for the peak and more than 800,000 medium and large-sized buses and 20,000 ships would be put into use to cope with the transport boom.
