Passenger traffic numbers have continued to fall in 2021, according to new data released by IATA.

Total demand for air travel in February measured in revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) fell by 74.1 per cent compared to February 2019 before Covid-19 struck.

The figure was even worse when compared to the 72.2 per cent drop in RPKs seen in January 2021, compared to two years earlier.
