IATA Chinese domestic market drops back to early 2021 levels on renewed restrictions

    IATA reported (20-Aug-2021) Chinese domestic air traffic, which had a swift recovery after the end of lockdowns in Mar-2020, underwent a sharp fall in Aug-2021 as the country has imposed strict domestic travel restrictions amid a growing spread of the delta variant of coronavirus. The setback in domestic traffic in China‘s domestic market is similar to the one experienced during the Chinese New Year in Feb-2021. IATA warned that the weakening of the Chinese domestic market poses a risk to the recovery, given that China accounts for around 30% of global domestic travel.
