Aviation industry bouncing back post Covid

Several airlines are still struggling to cope with the fast-growing demand for flights post-Covid, but the industry as a whole is bouncing back fast.

The International Air Transport Association’s latest data for July 2022 shows the recovery in air travel continues to build.

Total traffic in July 2022 was up 58.8% compared to July 2021 and globally, traffic is now at 74.6% of pre-Covid levels, Travel Mole reports.

International traffic rose 150.6% against figures for July 2021.

All markets reported strong growth, led by the Asia-Pacific region.

Asia-Pacific airlines posted a 528.8% rise in July traffic compared to last year, the strongest year-on-year rate across all regions.

“July’s performance continued to be strong, with some markets approaching pre-Covid levels," said IATA director general Willie Walsh.

"This is even with capacity constraints in parts of the world that were unprepared for the speed at which people returned to travel.”
