IATA Says Strong Air Travel Passenger Demand Continued in June

Read Time:43 Seconds

Aug 04. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) said today it is encouraged that passenger demand for airline travel continued to show strong growth in figures released for the month of June 2022.

But the numbers still aren’t back to the benchmark year of 2019 that the industry uses to gauge its comeback from the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic that gutted airlines in 2020 and 2021.

Total airline traffic in June 2022 (measured in revenue passenger kilometers or RPKs) was up 76.2 percent compared to June 2021, primarily propelled by the ongoing strong recovery in international traffic. Globally, traffic is now at 70.8 percent of pre-crisis levels.

Domestic traffic for June 2022 – described as travel between two destinations in the same country – was up 5.2 percent compared to the year-ago period.
