    Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) reported (13-Apr-2021) Asia Pacific regional carriers handled 1.2 million international passengers in Feb-2021, a decline of 93.7% year-on-year. Available seat capacity was down 84.1%. Average international passenger load factor was 24.8%. AAPA stated the data shows international air traffic demand remains at depressed levels as a result of continued border restrictions.
