Significantly more people flew in August than a year ago, but according to the Airline Association (IATA), the level from before the corona pandemic has not yet been reached again.
In international business, the number of passengers more than doubled in August: plus 115.6 percent. Overall, however, this was still only two-thirds of the business of 2019 - before the corona pandemic temporarily paralyzed air traffic almost completely. For domestic flights, the recovery had started earlier. In August, traffic was 85.4 percent of pre-crisis levels.
