IATA: Strong passenger demand continued in June

Friday, 04 Aug, 2022 0

The recovery in air travel remains strong, according to IATA’s latest passenger data for June 2022.

June 2022 revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) was up 76.2% compared to June 2021, primarily led by the recovery in international traffic.

Globally, traffic is now at 70.8% of pre-pandemic levels.

Specifically, International traffic rose 229.5% versus June 2021.

The lifting of travel restrictions in most parts of Asia-Pacific especially is contributing to the recovery.

June 2022 international RPKs reached 65% of June 2019 levels.

Demand for air travel remains strong. After two years, people are taking advantage of the freedom to travel wherever they can,” said Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General.

Asia-Pacific airlines saw a huge 492% rise in June traffic compared last year.

Capacity rose 138.9% and the load factor was up to 76.7%.

The region is now relatively open to foreign visitors and tourism which is helping foster the recovery.

European carriers’ June traffic rose 234% versus June 2021 and North American carriers experienced a 169% traffic rise.
