China's passenger trips on trains have exceeded 10 million for six consecutive days amid the extended National Day holiday travel rush, official data showed.

On Tuesday, a total of 11.3 million railway passenger trips are expected to be made, and 803 additional trains have been put into operation to handle the spike in trips involving tourism and family visits, according to the China State Railway Group Co., Ltd.

On Monday, 11.7 million railway passenger trips were made.

The railway operator estimated that the railway passenger trips during the holiday would reach 108 million.

China celebrates its National Day on Oct. 1, which coincided with the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival this year, thus extending the National Day holiday to eight days until Oct. 8.
