International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Tourism Economics have released a long-term view for post-COVID-19 passenger demand recovery which demonstrates that people remain eager to travel in the short and long-term. However, to ensure that aviation can sustainably deliver its social and economic benefits as it meets this long-term demand, the groups have called on governments to “step-up their support for more efficient operations and foster an effective energy transition”. The highlights of the forecast show that 2021 global passenger numbers are expected to recover to 52% of pre-COVID-19, 2019 levels; up to 88% in 2022; and 105% in 2023.
