In just five weeks, because of the pandemic, traffic passengers at Italian airports dropped from 460,000 to 7,000 units

An industry that by 2020 in the world seemed to istat has now instead it is hit by a global crisis

In Italy, as in many other countries, air traffic passengers experienced a sudden collapse due to the Covid-19 pandemic going down in just five weeks from just under 460,000 passengers arriving and departing at Italian airports Sunday, February 23, 2020 to less than 7,000 on Sunday, March 29. This was announced by the National Statistical Institute, recalling that Over the past decade, the sector has experienced a significant growth with a 33.3% increase in passengers transported to Italy, with a 53.0% of passengers on international flights and 7.2% of passengers passengers on domestic flights.

The Istat specified that, based on the values that describe the trend of the sector, air traffic in May 2020 it was expected to reach a level of about 17.9 million passengers transported and in August 2020 was supposed to peaking at about 21 million. However, the trend is been broken by the collapse in activity caused by the measures mobility limitation to contain the pandemic: compared to last year, last March were cancelled two out of three flights (-66.3%) and passengers have decreased 85% (from about 14 million to just over two million). In in particular, the passengers transported in March have passed from 4.9 million to less than 748 thousand for domestic flights; for those 64% of passengers, these went from 9.0 million to 1.3 million.

The Covid-19 emergency - highlighted by the Statistical Institute - brutally disrupted the positive development of the sector, plunging it into a dramatic global crisis in a very short interval and with unprecedented proportions. If the spread of the Covid-19 has almost completely stopped transport - Istat - the sector that suffered the strongest impact is the air transport of passengers: although mobility services for people and goods were included among the essential economic and productive sectors that are not suspended activities, measures to containment of the epidemic assumed by the national authorities and international authorities have in fact reduced the chances of limiting them to reasons of work, health or absolute restrictions on entry and exit countries and establishing the closure of some airports. The Istat pointed out that the figures are testament to the dramatic slowdown in passenger traffic, an area that by 2020 at the global level world seemed destined for significant growth and instead it is now hit by a global crisis.
