Asia-Pacific international travel hit hardest by COVID

International passenger demand in the once-thriving Asia-Pacific continued to suffer the steepest COVID-19 declines of any region in October as planes on average flew less than a third full.

New figures from the International Air Transport Association showed that October international passenger demand in the Asia-Pacific plunged by 95.6 percent compared to a year ago.

That was worse than the global international passenger demand slump of 87.8 percent and significantly below an 83 percent fall in Europe.

The load factor on Asia-Pacific international flights sagged 40.9 percent to 30.3 percent, the lowest of any region, as capacity tumbled 88.5 percent.
