When the coronavirus pandemic hit, airline traffic and demand disappeared almost overnight. In their efforts to stay afloat, airlines have taken drastic measures, including furloughs, buyouts and layoffs. And despite numerous companies opening up their borders, it is unclear when will travelers get over their apprehension and feel comfortable taking to the skies again.
Part of Phocuswright's Road to Recovery series, this report presents analysis of airline seat capacity and search traffic trends for key markets globally. Markets covered include the Americas (U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil), Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K.), and Asia Pacific/Middle East (Australia, China, India, Japan and the UAE). Data and analysis in this report covers historical airline seat capacity and search traffic from May 2019 to October 2020, and also includes forward projections for both seat capacity and search traffic from November 2020 to April 2021.
