Air traffic in the Asia Pacific region has remained depressed in February this year.

New figures released by the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) shows that the region’s airlines carried only 1.2 million international passengers during the month – just 6.3 per cent of the 18.3 million passengers recorded in February 2020.

Available seat capacity in February was 14.3 per cent of that in 2020, when aviation was already beginning to feel the Covid-19 squeeze.
