The first travel restrictions to contain the corona pandemic came into force over a year ago. A turning point for aviation. An animation of the data shows the clear effects of the crisis.
The number of passengers in Germany has been rising steadily for years – until the beginning of last year. After the outbreak of the coronavirus, travel restrictions were imposed in numerous countries from March 2020. The result: a collapse in passenger numbers in Germany as well.
However, the numbers are currently rising again. In mid-March, the federal government removed some holiday regions in Europe from the list of risk areas – including Mallorca. The demand for flights to the popular holiday island then increased significantly. According to this, there should be 532 flight connections to and from Germany by Easter Monday.
You can see in the video how severe the slump was for aviation as a result of the Corona crisis, which routes were particularly badly affected and how this is reflected in the radar images here or at the top of the article.
