will say goodbye The global travel sector in 2021 will have big losses and a severe recession For the second year in a row, with the continuing repercussions of the Corona epidemic and the restrictions that most countries of the world had to impose in order to combat this epidemic.
A new analysis showed that travel restrictions due to the Corona virus led to a 71% decrease in the number of international flights to and from Britain’s airports during the year 2021, compared to pre-epidemic levels.
Sirium, a company specialized in aviation analytics, said that about 406,000 international flights served Britain’s airports during 2021 until December 22, 2021, compared to about 1.4 million international flights in the pre-pandemic period, i.e. during the year 2019.
The recovery of international travel from the virus crisis was limited due to testing and quarantine requirements, and fears of adding countries to the red list that included mandatory quarantine at the hotel, according to local reports in Britain seen by Al Arabiya.net.
Corona rules for people arriving in Britain have changed throughout the year, which has also caused confusion in the travel movement, as many fear that they will face troubles and difficulties during their international movements even in light of the easing of restrictions.
Currently, fully vaccinated travelers must undergo a pre-departure test and self-isolate until they receive a negative post-arrival test result, and those who have not been fully vaccinated must self-isolate for 10 days after arriving in Britain from abroad.
According to the data, the most popular and busiest international route for travelers from Britain in 2021 is London / Heathrow to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, United States, although the United States reopened its doors to the British only last November.
British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and JetBlue operated a total of 2,410 flights from London to New York during 2021.
The data also showed a decrease in the number of domestic flights within Britain by almost 60% compared to 2019.
