Domestic flights reach 80% of pre-pandemic level

Domestic flights have already recovered 80% of passenger levels that existed before the covid-19 pandemic in Brazil, according to the minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado. In an interview to Agência Brasil, during a visit to Expo 2020 in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, Machado said that the airline Azul has already surpassed its pre-pandemic numbers. “The Recife hub, for example, already has 115% airflow. We also see hotel reservations at the end of the year, and there are practically no more hotels in the Northeast of Brazil, in ecotourism addresses, in Natal Luz de Gramado and Canela”, said the minister. International flights, however, are still far from recovery. According to Machado, air connections with abroad currently move only 30% of passengers from before covid-19. – https://www.panrotas.com.br/retomada-das-viagens/aviacao/2021/10/voos-domesticos-atingem-80-do-nivel-pre-pandemia_184668.html
