International Passenger Numbers Stay Down Across Asia-Pacific Featured

 

The Kuala Lumpur-based Association of Asia-Pacific Airlines (AAPA) has released the region’s international traffic figures for June. They revealed a fractional improvement over May’s numbers. In contrast to June, 1.3 million international passengers flew on the region’s carriers in May, representing just 4.3% of the volumes carried in the same 2019 month.

“The already dire situation has recently been compounded by new COVID-19 infections across the region due to the Delta variant,” says AAPA Director-General Subhas Menon. “Ongoing border restrictions are holding back any meaningful restart in international travel markets.”
