International flights were the most affected, with a drop of 87.8% compared to that registered in October last year

Total demand for air travel fell 70.6% in October compared to the same month last year, a sign of how “desperately slow” the sector’s recovery is going to be due to mobility restrictions due to the pandemic. , reported today the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

International flights were the most affected, with a drop of 87.8% compared to that registered in October last year.

“While the recovery is uneven by region, the overall outlook for international travel is bleak,” IATA Director General and CEO Alexandre de Juniac said in a statement.

The Asia-Pacific airlines were the worst stops in that month of October since their demand fell 95.6% compared to 2019.

Some recovery is observed in domestic markets, especially in China, whose demand in October was only 1.4% below last year.

The new waves of coronavirus together with government restrictions have aggravated the situation in the sector, which has already received $ 173 billion in aid, so IATA has asked governments to increase their support so that companies can survive until next summer.

IATA predicts that if the borders are opened in mid-2021, the industry will “only” lose $ 38.7 billion next year.

“Without the contribution of 3.5 trillion dollars from aviation to global gross domestic product, there can be no economic recovery,” De Juniac analyzed.
