Air Traffic Increased by 41.3% in November Last Year Compared to 2021, IATA Reveals


Data provided by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have revealed that the total traffic in November last year increased by 41.3 percent compared to the same period in 2021. Such data also show that globally, traffic is now at 75.3 percent of pre-pandemic November levels.

As for international traffic, it also saw an increase of 85.2 percent compared to November 2021. According to IATA, the most robust year-on-year results continued to be reported by Asia-Pacific, with all regions showing improvement compared to last year. In addition, in November 2022, international RPKs reached 73.7 percent of November 2019 levels.

In November last year, domestic traffic also saw an increase of 3.4 percent compared to November 2021. Meanwhile, the total domestic traffic of November 2022 was 77.7 percent, reaching the level of November 2019.

“Traffic results in November reinforce that consumers thoroughly enjoy the freedom to travel. Unfortunately, the reactions to China’s reopening of international travel in January remind us that many governments are still playing science politics regarding COVID-19 and travel,” IATA’s Director General Willie Walsh pointed out in this regard.

Further, IATA data shows that Asia-Pacific airlines saw a 373.9 percent increase in traffic in November 2022 compared to November 2021, which was the region’s most substantial year-on-year rate. Meanwhile, capacity increased by 159.2 percent, and load factor increased by 35.9 percentage points to 79.2 percent.

At the same time, last November’s traffic also increased by 45.3 percent compared to November 2021, while capacity increased by 25.1 percent, and the load factor increased by 11.6 percentage points to 83.6 percent.
