Global traffic lagging behind
International air traffic has not seen the same recovery that Europe has. There were more than 1.6 million passengers flying to and from European destinations in August, while outside of Europe that number was almost 250,000. The proportions were different in August 2019, with 30% of passengers flying to and from destinations outside of Europe. Cargo flights are an exception – they often fly to international destinations.

Looking ahead at September
It appears that the recovery from COVID-19’s impact is being curbed by the uncertainty about whether or not to travel within Europe (due to increasing coronavirus infections and negative travel advisories). We expect the amount of daily flights to vary between 700 and 900, and the number of passengers to decrease to between 35,000 and 60,000 per day.
