Air travel: More air travelers in August - but fewer than before Corona

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.

The number of passengers worldwide in August was 67.7 percent higher than in the same month last year, IATA reported in Geneva. Overall, air traffic was 73.3 percent of the level before the corona pandemic. The European airlines grew at an above-average rate of 78.8 percent.

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.
