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 countries opening
up their borders, it is unclear when travelers will get over their apprehension and feel comfortable taking to the skies again.
Part of Phocuswright's Road to Recovery series, this report - produced in association with 3Victors - 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 January 2019 to June 2020, and also includes forward projections for both seat capacity and search
traffic from July 2020 to December 2020.
The first report is available for free below (or download here).
Phocuswright's Charuta Fadnis and Kevin May of PhocusWire also discuss the report in last week's episode of InPhocus.
