In May 2022 African airlines’ capacity deployed reached 76.6% of 2019 capacity and their traffic recovery is now at 66.3% of 2019 pre-Covid-19 levels. This is according to the latest report from the African Airlines Association, a trade association of airlines from the member states of the African Union, headquartered in Nairobi. Bews24 reports it estimates that intra-African air passenger traffic has recovered to 74% of pre-pandemic levels in May, due to the easing of anti-Covid-19 restrictions in several African countries. The report also found that generally across Africa, air passenger traffic volumes remain low because of high ticket costs and “travel apathy”.
