The COVID-19 epidemic prompted substantial adjustments in airline schedules and operations, resulting in reduced air travel. In 2019, there were 4.5 billion airline passengers worldwide; a 60% reduction in 2020 resulted in only 1.8 billion passengers. Despite being lower than in 2019, the overall number of aviation passengers in June 2021 is 304 percent greater than in June 2020.
As individuals regain confidence in air travel, 52 percent of customers say they want to fly to their holiday destinations in the coming months. Travel items typically utilized for air travel, such as travel accessories and personal care products, have also seen an increase in revenue.
