The celebration of Eid al-Fitr which marks the conclusion of Ramadan, had a significant global impact on the travel and tourism sector. The holiday was observed with family gatherings, the wearing of new clothes, and the enjoyment of sweet delicacies.

In Indonesia, which is one of the most populous Muslim country globally, a considerable part of the population participated in “mudik,” the traditional homecoming event. This phenomenon illustrates the profound cultural and emotional significance of such traditions, emphasizing the need for reconnection and rejuvenation.

The travel for Eid al-Fitr involves not only a massive movement of people within countries such as Indonesia but also affects international travel flows, highlighting the interconnectedness of global travel networks.
The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry highlighted the economic implications of Eid, forecasting a financial turnover of billions during the holiday period. This turnover spans across various sectors, including retail, transit, and tourism, showcasing the holiday’s broad economic impact.
The surge in travel during Eid al-Fitr, illustrated by overbooked flights and crowded bus and train stations, underscores the holiday’s significant influence on transportation and logistics industries.

The celebration of Eid al-Fitr as a victory over economic and social difficulties, as voiced by individuals and public figures, mirrors the resilience and hope that such festivals bring to communities, potentially boosting consumer confidence and spending.

The communal prayers and festivities, alongside the expression of solidarity with those in conflict areas like Gaza, highlight the social and humanitarian dimensions of Eid al-Fitr, which transcend geogra.
