Airbnb plans to remove listings and experiences in China by midsummer, shuttering domestic business in the country, according to multiple reports.
Revenue from stays in China accounted for 1% of Airbnb’s total business in previous years, as reported by the outlet. Business in China has been slow to recover since 2020, as the country entered numerous lockdowns to fight COVID-19 infection rates, and competitors have emerged.
Despite the tourism business rebounding from the pandemic, Airbnb’s stock has fallen more than 30% in 2022.
The company offers approximately 6 million listings around the world. In March, the company announced it was suspending operations in Russia and Belarus amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
