The number of flights in Ukraine’s airspace reduced by 68.3% in July this year, compared with July 2019.
The state-owned State Air Traffic Services Enterprise (UkSATSE) announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.
UkSATSE provided air-traffic control services to 12,195 flights in July.
"The total number of flights in July includes 2,317 domestic flights (32.9% fewer compared with July 2019), 5,751 international flights (65.2% fewer), and 4,127 transit flights (77.7% fewer)," the statement said.
As the CFTS portal reported earlier, the number of flights in Ukraine’s airspace reduced by 87.1% to 4,584 flights in June. These include 1,403 domestic flights (53.9% fewer compared with June 2019), 1,650 international flights (89.5% fewer), and 1,531 transit flights (90.8% fewer). Ukrainian airlines performed 1,778 flights and foreign airlines 2,806 in June.
According to forecasts by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the global passenger traffic (revenue passenger kilometers or RPKs) will not return to pre-COVID-19 levels until 2024, a year later than previously projected.
