According to an ACI World report on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on airports, global passenger traffic is expected to improve significantly in 2022, reaching 77% of what it was in 2019, with traffic for 2022 forecast to total 7.1 billion.

The research suggests that the recovery will mainly be driven by domestic passenger traffic but will be hampered by the recovery stagnation in Asia-Pacific and a slower recovery in global international travel (globally, domestic traffic accounted for 58% of total passenger traffic in 2019). Global domestic passenger traffic is still expected to reach 2019 levels in late 2023 with full-year 2023 traffic on a par with 2019 levels. However, global international passenger traffic will require almost one more year to recover and is forecast to reach 2019 levels only by the second half of 2024.
