Routes at Bergen

Routes Online reports that buoyed by strong domestic demand and an appetite for international leisure travel, the latest figures published by Eurocontrol show that traffic within Europe has now recovered to about 85% of 2019 levels with Greece, Norway, Spain and Turkey exceeding 90%.

Speaking during the first day of Routes Europe on Wednesday (18 May) ACI Europe Deputy Director General, Morgan Foulkes, said that the removal of travel restrictions coupled with short- and medium-haul leisure demand means a “bullish” few months are imminent.

Europe’s low-cost carriers (LCCs) are obvious beneficiaries of the rebound and continue to ramp up capacity accordingly, but legacy airlines are seeing welcome signs too. Air France-KLM, International Airlines Group and Lufthansa Group each pointed to positive booking and capacity trends in their recent results.

Air France-KLM CEO Ben Smith earlier this month highlighted a significant increase for corporate and premium traffic, complementing the already strong leisure and Visual Flight Rules (VFR) segments. He also expects a “healthy yield environment” for the rest of the year.

Routes Europe will take place on 9-11 May 2023 in Lodz (Poland).
