Report of ICAO about air traffic
Added on Wed March 3rd, 2021
A voluminous report of ICAO, the UN agency for civil aviation, show that in 2020 there has been a drop of almost two-thirds in passengers from air transport. Airlines also lost $391 billion in revenues. In the past 12 months, about 1.65 billion travellers showed up at airport boarding gates, 63.4% less than in 2019 (-2.85 billion).
The drop in passengers is also greater than the cut in the number of seats on offer. The biggest decrease is in the international flights segment (almost -75%), mainly as a result of the travel freeze and country closures to contain the health emergency. The number of travellers on domestic connections also falls.
With -120 billion in revenue, Asia is confirmed as the area of the world most affected, but Europe is second with -100 billion.
