Now, two years into the pandemic, Airbnb is substantially stronger than ever before.”

”In Q1 2022, we exceeded 100 million Nights and Experiences Booked, our largest quarterly number ever.

And through our focus and discipline, we delivered $229 million of Adjusted EBITDA, $1.2 billion of net cash provided by operating activities and $1.2 billion of free cash flow in the quarter,” Airbnb said in a letter to shareholders.
