The dance incorporated traditional elements of Chinese martial arts as well as modern hip-hop inspired moves,CCTV said.

"I think it's just like being in a big party, incredibly happy, and it had that sort of atmopshere too. And everyone was taking photos, shouting and cheering us on," said flight attendant Gao Min.

The dance's organiser said that it was performed to give travellers a "pleasant" spectacle during the Chinese Spring Festival travel rush.

CCTV said that China's 2014 Spring Festival travel rush started on Thursday, with an estimated 3.6 billion passenger trips being made across the country during the 40-day holiday travel period.

According to state-run Xinhua News Agency, the numbers are up from last year, with roughly 200 million more trips being made.
