Growth in air travel demand came to a stop in November, according to the latest data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The organization reported that global air travel demand was off 70.3% year over year in November, nearly unchanged from October's 70.6% year-over-year decline. International demand was down 88.3% in November compared with 2019, while demand for domestic flights in countries around the world was down 41%. In a statement, IATA Director General Alexandre de Juniac blamed what he called the “full stop” in global travel demand recovery on governments because of their decisions to respond to new virus outbreaks with additional travel restrictions and quarantine measures. Saying that such measures were “clearly inefficient,” de Juniac said vaccines offer the long-term solution. In the meantime, he said, testing is the best way to stop the spread of the virus and start the economic recovery. He asked, “How much more anguish do people need to go through — job losses, mental stress — before governments will understand that?”
