Jul traffic boost


THE Internatio­nal Air Transport Associatio­n has cited “significan­t momentum” in both domestic and internatio­nal travel demand across the globe during Jul, although demand still remains far below pre-pandemic levels.

Total traffic was down 73.6% on Jul 2019 figures, with the Asia-Pacific region recording the biggest downturn of 94.2% because of strict border control measures.

IATA Director-General Willie Walsh said the figures confirmed that “as the Northern Hemisphere summer travel season draws to a close it is clear that too many government­s missed the opportunit­y to apply a risk-based approach to managing their borders”.
